I had to shut down my computer last night as a thunderstorm rolled in. After the typical flashing and booming, the rain started. After a couple of minutes of rain, it changed to hail. The entire house was ringing with the impact of the hailstones. It continued off-and-on for about an hour and a half. It was so loud that both our dogs were huddled up to me, shivering. Once the worst of it was over, I went to bed.
This morning, I got up and noticed there were still drops of rain sitting on top of the gazebo in our back yard. A few minutes ago, I got up to let Xander out and noticed that the raindrops still appeared to be sitting on the gazebo roof.
They’re not raindrops:
A bit closer:
The entire roof of the gazebo looks like a “No Hunting” sign up north: riddled with bullet holes.
