daisy_knotwise had run the girls upstairs to start heading them toward bed while I waited downstairs to change out the laundry. This was about the moment that the thunderstorm hit in earnest. I watched as pebble-sized hail cascaded down on the back of the house. Then I went down and swapped out the laundry.
When I got back upstairs, the wind had shifted. Now, we had marble-sized hail at the front of the house. One of them conveniently bounced up on the sheltered porch, so I grabbed it and took it upstairs to show to Katie and Julie.
