I had escaped from the office early and dashed home to change for Julie's reception and the fiesta at Oscar's and while I getting ready, I heard a weird rattling on my side windows. I went out on the front porch to see marble-sized hail coming down. It was soon joined by thunder and real rain and I dashed for my camera and took a couple photos. It only lasted about ten minutes but it was a weird ten minutes. Blog dilemma solved! Here are the two I liked best:
You can see how hard the rain and hail were coming on my corner of the world. It really looked and felt kind of surreal.
I liked this photo because of the contrast between the petunias blooming on the porch wall and the hail on the lawn!! You can see poor, beloved Miss Ruby being pelted!
My phone is ringing and I really do have to get moving. With the clouds moving in there won't be a "glow" at the Balloon Festival tonight so Plan B is being negotiated. I'm off to my other obligations and will catch up with them later!!!
