Freak storm...

We have had one of the coolest summers in Minnesota history...not that I am complaining. I am not one of those that likes the hot, hot, hot. It has been breezy and pleasant. But yesterday, we were hit with a HUGE thunderstorm and it dropped these quarter size pieces of hail. It was terrifying and exhilarating at the same time!!!
This is on our back was 3-4 inches deep!
Our birdbath got a little chilly!
This is our front can see how big some of the hail got. Good news is, we got a lot of much needed rain for our farmers...bad news is the hail beat the you-know-what out of our flowers and garden.
Oh, well...that is how quick things can change. I remember hail in Hollywood and in Newport Beach, so no-one is safe!

We were supposed to catch the "megabus" to Chicago that day from Minneapolis- 35 was closed, every side street was either clogged with traffic snarls or downed trees. We missed our bus, and drove ourselves. I believe tornados hit, so I guess hail was better! What a day!
