Oh my! The husband and I were outside minding our own business. He was putting the finishing touches on the yard fence, the gate latch. I was trying to take pictures of Stubby for our partner. From out of nowhere, it starts to thunder, the wind picks up, the temperature drops about 20 degrees. We figure it will most likely be a short shower. They've been missin' us all summer. But the husband goes ahead and rolls his welding stuff up and we head to the barn.
We haven't been in the barn 10 minutes and the bottom falls out! The thunder and lightning are bad. Zena is having a fit. Something pops in the barn and the husband says he saw sparks fly. We still don't know what that was.
I decided to step away from the door and sit in the middle of the barn on some sacks of feed, thinking that may be the safest place. The husband sits on a large metal tool box. HELLO!
The rain is pouring down.
Then it starts hailing!
I can't remember the last time I was in a hail storm. It ranged from pea to marble size. Luckily, it didn't last very long.
We waited till it let up a little. I shoved my camera down my shirt and we made a run for the house.
We were suppose to have our back pasture baled in the next day or two. Guess that will be put off until it dries out. One good thing about all this rain, besides we really needed it, is my truck finally got a washin'!
