Prince was standing on the upper porch under the eve watching the storm, when the hail began in earnest.
Here he is looking down the northwest end of the porch.
Here he is looking the other way. Note how vague the white barn appears.
The sun was trying to shine and a rainbow appears over the Jackson's Hill
The sun is now out with ominous clouds heading east.
More ominous clouds looking north.
Prince took this photo from the upper porch looking down at the ground.
The hail filled up my flower pots.
More ominous clouds looking east.
The sky is beginning to clear but the rainbow still appears. The rainbow stayed for a long time.
The sun on the ground and the dark clouds lends this an unusual image.
The temperature had dropped thirty or more degrees and I had to go back in because I did not have a jacket on and only flip flops on my feet. I had dressed early in the morning and not for a drastic weather change.
The hail storm lasted a whole fifteen minutes and the front windows were being hit so hard that I was amazed they did not crack. Mimi's room has windows on the west side with a five foot over hang . She said they never got wet however, the wind was blowing so hard those windows got wet Saturday. She will be ninety next month and has lived out here a long long time and she told us she never remember it hailing so long.
I was always under the impression that March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb.
The kitty justice is Mother Nature put a curve in that saying.
