Pardon the quality of the photos, but the sky went dark and it started to rain, blow and hail! Elaine took the photos through the kitchen window. I was hiding out in the garage, waiting for it to lift.
Needless to say, the garden and flowers took a beating. The hail was mostly nickle size, with a few approaching a quarter. The horses headed for the tall timber and the chickens for the safety of their coop.
Only in Alberta at the end of July do you get these gems of nature. I guess other places get them too, but we seem to get more than our share. It seemed odd to see the muddy fields turn white.
We are truly blessed!
