That was neat!

Massive hailstorm--the stones weren't terribly large (the largest were, say, quarter-sized), but very intense, so that there's a layer of ice over parts of the road--along with some foot-deep water that looked an inch deep. Butterfly's car is an ugly beast, but it handled that water realgood.

The hailstorm caught us at Target, mid-shopping. One of the neatest moments--besides the storm, lightning, and crash on the metal roof--was the huge cascade of water past the target's big red bullseye marker. It looked like a waterfall of stage blood. Beautiful!

The road in front of my house looks like a lawn, all the new leaves from the chinaberry tree sprouting from the asphalt. Nature is cruel and whimsical.

On the "whimsical" note, the lights burned out on the TARGET sign like so:

0 TARGET
becomes

0 TARGET

Heh.

That was such an amazing sound, as the hail started coming down...really startling. Pretty too. Lucky being caught out in it. :)

Pfbth. Being stuck in heavy rainstorms has lost a lot of the romance ever since I got soaked by the reality :)

Just have to be stuck in them in warmer things, is all. :) It's not the unpreparedness that makes them wonderful.

No storms out here in Basatrop. Which is odd, we usually get all the rain that comes through Central Texas. XP
