First spring hailstorm
Hailstorms are a common feature of spring in Colorado. The size of the hail can get as big as a golf ball and make dents in the roof your car if it is parked outside. Gulp! Mine is. Hailstorms are usually accompanied by loud thunder and brilliant lightning. Yesterday's was just a preview of what lies ahead.
Funny thing is that when I was viewing my pictures, I went back to the first picture in the folder in which these are stored. It is from March 2006 and it was snowing!
Notice how much greener the grass is this year! It's a combination of more precipitation and also that the yard was aerated in fall.
Yes, it was a good couple of inches!
