Hail Storm

This is a hail storm we had in Driggs, see all the white ? The piece's were pretty big, I had to get Candra to hold some of them so you could see. I think this storm was the very end of June (ya I know- dates, dates, dates) Anyway poor Candra, she is such a good sport- her little hands were freezing in just a few seconds- "oops, drop them baby!!" But at first the rain was just lashing down, my girls said "Hey mom, we have a waterfall off of our roof!" And indeed we did!! then the rain turned to hail! and this is what we got!

Nancy,

I came across your blog through Becca's, so hope you don't mind. I remember that hail storm. It was crazy! I took some pics of it and they are on my blog. Your blog is cute!

Um.... one of the reasons I have fond memories of Driggs but I'm happy to live further South! In fact, I'd be even more happy if we lived in the desert. Ugh, hail in June.

i remember when i was younger and my sisters and i would do the same thing, go outside during the hail storm (genius) and get as much as we could and then freeze it in the freezer! :)
two years ago, right after we bought our very first brand spankin' new car, there were tornado warnings while i was at work and a hailstorm came through and pelted my brand new car. $4500 damage baby. it was SO SAD! I'd never seen hail the size of softballs before....ahhh. Oklahoma.
