Unseasonably warm temperatures gave way to a cold front producing pea-sized hail.
The little ones found it fascinating, and after the rain stopped we went out to explore.
Although it is officially still Winter here on the Plains, we can get some incredibly strong storms during the Fall and Spring months.

|View of our back porch. The hail was coming in sideways!|

|An incredible amount of hail rained down in only a few minutes. If filled up the gutters and poured out into a "puddle?"|
A cold rain is coming down and there is a gloominess outside that can't seem to be shaken. I suppose it has something to do with the yellow-green of the lawn and the barren trees. Looking forward to Spring's arrival tomorrow and warmer days ahead!
