By the time I went down to the barn it was really raining. While I went through the more complicated rainy-day routine with the girls, it began to pour, rain coming down in sheets and windy. Really, really windy! Back in the house, I wrung out my socks and hung my dripping bibbies over the tub. The wind did die down, but it continued to rain heavily all day.
In early after noon, the thunder and lightning show began. Loud booms and bright flashes. Shortly after that, it started to hail pea-size bits of ice. It would hail, stop, and then hail more and harder. Then, would you believe it, the sun came out.
We got the full weather menu yesterday. Gee, I'm sure glad I'd watered the plants the day before.
