It has been pretty nice the last few days, and now, with the weekend approaching, it turns to junk. Last night, just as I was driving home, it decided to come a gully washer (for you Yankees, that means it rained like crazy). As I walked to the car, it poured and I got wet clear inside my skin. About half way home, the rain turned to hail and all hail broke loose. It quickly turned to hail-so-loud-I-coudn’t-hear-myself-yell-in-the-car hail. I mean it put down hail and meant it.
A friend suggested the hail had challenged her car to a MMA fight and the winner was not clear. That pretty well sums it up. I am sure that if we see the sun again, I will have dents all over my car. Poor Steve…
Of course, hail is really ice and it became abundantly clear that I needed to be careful on the hail. I slid at one stop sign which was an attention grabber. Anyhow, I slowed down and got home just in time for it all to stop as fast as it started.
There were tons of blooms out and the bees had been busy on them. It remains to be seen how the hail might affect the build-up of bees. This is a critical time for them to be making more bees and collecting pollen and nectar.
I love spring for all of the new life that comes and the rain that sparks the world to green up again. I might be able to do with out the hail though…just spring please!
