What the...

It was 90 on Monday. I have no idea why. It will be 120 in June, at this rate.

Last night, it was even stranger. At 3 a.m., I woke up because I heard thunder. Then I heard what sounded like light rain. Then heavier. Then it became this wall of sound.

Eli 11.7 woke up, too. "What the heck is happening?" he asked. I took him downstairs and opened the front door.

"It's SNOWING?" Eli asked.

"Hail," I said. "I've never seen so much hail!"

It was incredible. In ten minutes, we were buried in pea-sized hail. I've never been in anything even remotely like it in terms of density.

This morning, I took a closer photo:

Sorry, that's a little blurry, but you can see the individual pieces of ice.

There were also an incredible number of green leaves on the yard, knocked down by the ice.

A beautiful riot of color.
