Yesterday was a rainy Sunday afternoon. That really good kind of rainy afternoon where the internet is unplugged (for safety reasons) family casually spends the day on the porch watching the rain with the younger kids jumping and screaming at that loudest booms of thunder. :-)
Sunday actually started out with pretty nice weather. As I potted my flowers, however, I starting noticing the darkening skies and flickers of lightening in the distance. I shoved the rest of my flowers into their new soil and put them out in the yard for watering just as the heavens opened. And to my surprise, the opened with hail first!
Those of you with faster internet, check out this video Stephen took during the storm! Note my flower pots, the cows heading for shelter and the hail turned rain by the end.
After it settled down some, the kids went exploring out in the back pasture. Some thought they saw lightening strike the field and wanted to see if they could detect any evidence of that. (There was none.)
(For the moment anyway. I'm pretty sure they're scheming something of an escape plan, involving buckets, the baby cow's help, a hay bale, some rope, milking time, a rooster and their cute faces. Heh, hope it doesn't work!)
