Hail Event!

Yesterday we had a hail storm.

I had just come back from work and I kept hearing this random thuds. I asked my hubby what it was and he said, "Oh probably some tree or bird."

Minutes later the hail started pelting down. It was loud and huge! It was really this big! I ran to grab my camera and my heart just stopped.

As photographers, real or pretend, you need to always be prepared to take a photo. I know it. You know it. Everyone knows it.

Well guess what? The battery in my camera had very little juice, the memory was which is usually in the camera was not in.

So I told my hubby, "Go get some hail! Put it in the freezer! I need it for my blog!" And he did. It is still in my freezer and I will take some photos after work for you guys.

I did manage to take a couple of photos for you.

And now I am going to check if my car had hail damage. Wish me luck!

Ooh! Those hail stones look pretty big to me.

A couple of years ago, I remember a hailstone in my city that left a lot of cracked windshields and dented vehicle bodies in its wake...

Hail, yes! I don't know what the hail is goin' on down there in Texas, but I sure as hail, hope yer car is ok. "Stop drop, and roll, don't work in hail.!" (My momma tol' me that.) All I know in that kind of situation, is 'Hail, Mary!' Just stopped by to say, "hail..oh", and proud to meet yer acquaintance, Ma'am.

This storm was such a blast!

I found your blog through a link and was impressed. The Cathedral is so fantastic! I could have stayed there all day and still not noticed everything. Thank you for following me too. Critiques are always welcome. :)

MM: Yep. Very crazy stuff!

Blogitse: I freeze it. And I will never ever make the same mistake with my camera stuff! My bad. I should know better!

BG: Thanks! What is amazing is how perfectly round they are. How does that happen?

Nicole: Ha! Everyone is asking me about my car. What about me??? A huge hail hit me on my head and I almost became a normal person for 5 minutes. But I am back to my crazy self now:)

Sauron: Fortunately we were lucky. There were a lot of cars damaged but my car survived:)

Mythos: In Texas, we say Hail-ooooooh....
