A June Hailstorm

Last week we had a major hailstorm. These babies were the size of a quarter and they came down so hard and fast that they tore leaves and branches off of just about anything that had any to start out with. Within a matter of minutes the entire yard was covered in rather large hailstones. We all had fun watching the hail, but I was so thankful that I didn’t have any tomatoes planted in the ground yet, there is no way they would have survived. Even the street was flooded. It certainly makes me think of farmers and their dependence on the weather for their crops. The hailstorm was pretty isolated, nobody else in town got it, so I don’t think there was much damage, which is good. Just thought I’d share our weird and wacky Wyoming weather with you, back to more holiday pics on Monday. Have a great weekend!

    It looks like snow! Our weather in Western Nebraska has been wild and crazy as well. We have home, vehicle, and garden damage. Hopefully it will settle down for awhile!

    We got that crazy weather too. Just a little hail this time. Looks like you guys got a downpour of it. It’s also been extremely cool and rainy here. We’re looking forward to it being warmer and back to summer weather soon!

    Hope you’re settling back in well.
