Summer Ice

It hails a lot here in Colorado.

Everytime it hails, I am reminded of the Bat Masterson quote, "We all get the same amount of ice. The rich get it in the summer. The poor get it in the winter."

In Colorado, we get it year round. And the summer version can put you in the poorhouse.

We've been lucky so far. This is the largest we've experienced. Other areas were getting hail that was much, MUCH larger. The biggest hail stone we received from this last storm measured 2" across (but all of them aren't quite that big). I saved some in the freezer to show the "Pickles" when the get home from vacation.

I was coming home from running errands when it started. Thankfully, I was able to get home and pull the car into the garage before it got really bad. The hail guards did a fantastic job of keeping my tomatoes safe, too!
