After much dry weather, a storm brewed, boiled over and pelted us with hail and rain, accompanied by thunder and lightning. The sound on the roof and vélux was extraordinary.
I did not open the door to take these photos.
When the storm eventually abated, we stepped outside.
Our weather station indicated that we had had 176.3mm of precipitation. (almost 7 inches)
This morning, many things seem to have weathered the storm, others look quite bedraggled. There are still piles of ice.
Usually beans will sprout within a weeks’ time but these were not coming up. I finally decided to water them and here they are.
Meanwhile, we have a prowler. I saw her eating fallen cherries and wild strawberries. Last evening I almost ran her over with my bicycle, she was in the middle of the driveway.
