Happy Memorial Day Weekend!
Our summer-like weather gradually cooled as the afternoon progressed. Black storm clouds appeared to the south and got closer - and blacker. Pelting rain arrived and I became soaked, but I was intent on my task. Then, thunder boomed and I picked up my tools and went back to the house.
My husband and son joined me. As we were bringing things into the garage, it started to hail. Not surprised but quite dismayed, I said, "Look guys, it’s snowing." My husband responded, "Susan - that's hail."
I was puzzled that he hadn't noticed the big fat wet flakes hitting my arms and face, and drifting softly through the air. "I know it's hailing, but it is snowing too."
"Susan - those are petals."
Oh. Right. I looked up and realized I was standing right beside our cherry tree, currently in full bloom.
|It’s sunny again - but do you see the “snowflakes” on the leaves and the rock?”|
What sort of weather are you experiencing this weekend?
