On our toes

video

Well, it's all the rage in the Fredericksburg blogs (see here and here) to talk about a pretty kooky event that happened here last night - a hail storm. While we've been having some impressive lightning/thunder storms, the addition of hail was just Mother Nature laughing and keeping us on our toes.

In my little neck of the woods, my garden appears to have weathered it all pretty well. The netting over the strawberries acted as a bit of a shield thankfully. My borage, however, does seem to need some staking up after the past few nights of hard rain/hail.

Crazy! Much bigger hail then I've ever seen.

What a coinky-dink - I filmed the hail storm on my camera last night too! I was going to post it this morning. It looks pretty much like your film, though...
