Hail's Bells! We had a quick thunderstorm and the rain was nice until it started to sound like artillery fire on my skylight! I ran to my living room slot window and snapped the top pic of the hail scattering my front yard. The second photo is from my front door. Looks like rock salt, doesn't it? It was thunderously loud for about 10 minutes and then.... done. Amazing!
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
