We got another round of hail again tonight, amazing how quick it comes down and then it is done.
We have been having some crazy weather around here lately, it has been raining so much the last two weeks that it feels like we are actually living in the pacific northwest.
Here is a photo taken yesterday 5/23/2015 by lars Leber that he shared with our local KKTV news station.
He took a beautiful photo, the clouds are absolutely stunning, shows the kind of weather we have been having lately !
A friendly hello and good morning to everyone, we hope you are having a wonderful day. Well where do we begin this weeks post? How about we got hail and lots of it on May 7, 2015. It is hard to say for sure how much but I would guess conservatively atleast 6 inch’s in our general area, some of it was pellet to ping pong ball in size. In all my life, I have never seen this much hail come down in a matter of maybe 30 minutes. Let’s just say we got Hammered, traffic just came to a standstill. Here are some pictures that were posted on our local news channel.
Only yesterday were we walking through the garden with beautiful sunshine, enjoying seeing all the seedlings coming up. I am not sure how bad the garden was effected but the garlic being our earliest crop was looking wonderful, now it is battered and bruised. Here is how it looked the day before the storm.
Those of us who enjoy gardening here in the Springs know that this part of season we are in right now. I remembered last year, it was late June and our corn crop was looking beautiful and we got alot hail too. Not quite this much but enough that I thought we lost the entire crop, it looked aweful. But, you know what? The corn grew back beautifully and we got a wonderful crop. As in most things in life, the plants have a way of rebounding back. So we have to keep reminding ourselves “That above the storm clouds, the sun is still shining.” Weather photo’s courtesy of KKTV news
