Can You Believe It????
We have been having some weird things happen lately with the weather. The TV stations all say we are in a "Spring Monsoon" which usually happens in July and August. So, ok we're getting alot of rain. that is not the usual scenario her for May. Its always sunny and warm during the day and cool at night. So Tuesday, when it started to rain I thought, "No big deal, just another crappy afternoon." then things got really ugly. the hail started coming down and would not quit.Hail is a big thing here because, 1) we usually don't get any and 2) when it comes, it just beats down everybody's fields and destroys crops and anything in its way. Hail came down from at least 20 minutes. As you can see by the pictures, it looks like snow! I had to run home and check my plants and luckily, they didn't get damaged. Terry was worried about his jalapeno peppers, but they were ok too. Please let there be some warm weather here soon!
