You know the old adage that goes: if you don’t like the weather, just wait 5 minutes? The past half hour has certainly been a good illustration! After having just come in from sweeping off the deck because it was just so nice outside, I couldn’t stay in my chair, black clouds rolled in and within minutes, hail the size of small peas started to pelt down.
In the length of time it took me to unload the above two photos, I looked out the window and saw this — beautiful, cumulus clouds on the horizon, though the dark bank above still looks threatening. (Forgive the power lines in the photo — it was raining too hard to cross the road where I would have avoided them.)
I’m a volunteer “Weather Watcher” with Environment Canada, so I reported the hail and was told that this could continue off and on all afternoon, with some thundershowers to boot. Mother Nature is such a showoff! :)
