Hailstorm

 
The devil's behind the door, beating his wife with a frying pan -- that's what my grandmother used to say when there was sunshine and rain at the same time.
 We got a bit of hail as well. . .

And a low slung rainbow. . .

Everything wants to grow. . .

I never heard that saying before. I love how green and pretty it is where you live.--Inger

What a quaint expression of your grandmother's. I don't know that one. Sunshine and rain makes for good growing weather.

We've had more hail this spring than any that I can remember. In April had hail the size of baseballs. We were on the road and nowhere near cover so I knew we'd have huge 'dings' in the roof of the car. When it was over, not a dent in sight. Maybe large hailstones that hadn't completely frozen thru and were 'slushy' enough not to do damage. Been a very edgy spring 'weatherwise."

That's some story, Lynne! My husband got caught in a hailstorm a couple of years ago and his truck was covered with dings. The car place used an implement something like a plumber's plunger to undent the dents. It worked really well.

I realize in your photos, my favorites are always the ones with the touch of blue...the bench, the pot, etc...really pops in all that green!

My mama used to say, "Sunshine and rain, sure to rain tomorrow!" I think I like your grandma's saying better.

I like those old sayings about a natural phenomenon. My mum used to say when it was raining and the sun was shining:"There is a fair in hell"!

I've never heard that before.

The weather here is just SO strange anymore, but I'm not complaining as we're much better off then some.

I always find it amazing that we can living many thousand of miles from each other and yet share almost exactly the same weather patterns at the same time. Let us hope we both find sun soon.
