What The Hail?!

Today started off normal. The sun was shinning. The sky was blue. Absolutely perfect weather.

I even had a conversation with the oldsters at work about how nice the weather was. They noticed that the little decorative windmills in the courtyard weren't even moving.

On the way home from work, we turned on the air conditioner.

Then I went to my mom's house to visit, we heard some thunder, and then......


It sounded like rocks were being shot into the house! It was so loud and kinda scary.

We looked out the window (and what did we see - can't help but finish that phrase that way, but this was not popcorn), and this is what we saw!!

Yes, that's right, it looks like it snowed!! The hail was a little bit smaller than marbles and I picked them up and they were solid ice!

It was crazy because it only hailed/rained for about 15 minutes, and it looked like this! The roads in our little neighborhood are running with water and the roofs (is that what they are called?? Or is it rooves?? Hmmmmm...... you grammar geniuses need to help me out with this one. While you're at it, what do you call more than on rhinoceros?) are covered in white.

Well, all of this insanity happened about an hour ago, and now the sun is shinning, there is hardly a cloud in the sky and not even a breeze. We have come completely full circle!

I guess that's why they say that only a newcomer or a fool tries to predict the weather in Arizona!

Ha ha this title made me laugh because with your accent that's exactly how I imagine you saying that! ;) That hail is crazy! We got rain down here, but nothing like that!
