You can't tell if you judge by the weather.
Today was 70+ degrees warm outside. After school, the kids played outside while I worked on weeding some of my garden beds and went ahead and planted some radishes. After a couple hours, we came in to shower and get ready for dinner.
That's when a loud alarm sounded in my home and I about peed myself, because I had forgotten what my weather radio's warning was like after so many months of it being silent.
We were under a tornado watch. Or warning. My radio said one, my internet said another.
And then this happened-
Hail that was piled high and heavy enough that it took me several attempts to get my back door open.
Hail that lasted for what seemed like an eternity. I don't think I'd ever experienced hail that lasted more than a minute or two. This went on for a good ten minutes. Just pummeling all the green things growing in my yard.
Just goes to show, life is full of surprises. This maybe wasn't one I would choose, but I do think it is good to be awestruck by nature once in a while.
Even if it means you have to replant your radishes.
