Hail And Rainy May

It was sunny/cloudy this morning,
then cloudy, then rain, then hail.
Then it got sunny/cloudy again.

The hail was the size of marbles.
It is trying to be Spring out there, but it's having trouble.

The chickens didn't mind the hail or rain. They were happy to be outside!

But it was the thunder that got my attention. It was loud and close. There was one blast of thunder that fairly shook the house. I unplugged the computer and spent time reading Maisie Dobbs books.

Kristine couldn't get something to get the speakers hooked up. Going to have to work on that. She did pick up some jeans we ordered. They didn't have them in the length we needed.

I think I will have leftover Thai food for dinner. Good stuff!

I know what you mean about the weather! It is the same here in the UK. We'll have four hours of torrential downpours of rain followed by four hours of blazing heat. There was thunder and lightning the other night too!

Hope the chickens are ok!

I'm always amazed at how my chickens will stand out in the rain and get soaking wet when they have shelter right there! And Thai food, yum. We had that for our anniversary last Sunday!

The weather is stranger than usual this year. Glad your chickens don't mine the weather. :)

We are finally having a week of sun and dry weather! It has been a pretty wet spring for us and we are sure glad to see the sun for a while! I am glad that the hail didn't do any damage!

I sure could use the rain; of course, I don't want the hail. It's summer here today. About ninety degrees.

I love long as it stays far enough away. I hope you guys dry out soon.
