13 July 2011


9 days straight of afternoon/evening lightning & thunderstorms. Yesterday, I realized I hadn't seen monsoon-like deluges like this since Japan. Today's got a bit crazy. Heard about ping-pong sized hail warning for Weld county earlier, so didn't think it'd hit us...was expecting another bout of  liquid precipitation, not the frozen variety.
Near the beginning of the storm.
Luckily, we only got mothball sized & not the larger ones expected up north or it woulda been much badderer.
It just kept increasing in size & intensity.

It even raged  the compost bin & the cactus is in pain.
Wounded from battle....at least a squash & 2 zucchini
are still hanging tough.
We now have ventilated siding on the north & west sides.
It's not nice to fool Mother Nature.

Oh look. Blue skies.
Z'avez fini?
