It's Hailing in Florida!!!

 The world is a tragedy for those who feel, but a comedy for those who think.   

Horace Walpole (1717 - 1797)
 

Yes folks, it hailed here in Florida today! 

                          

I took the picture above from my back door while it was happening.

My son and I had a blast trying to shove each other out the door for hail pelting. He said it will be like an ordinary day at the paintball field with his friends shooting each other. It is his way of saying, "this will hurt you more than it will hurt me." 

This kind of thing happening in Florida is somewhat of an anomaly. I have lived here for more than two decades and only witnessed two hailstorms. Yes, once every decade, it seems like Floridians piss Someone up there enough to send us down golf ball sized snowballs.

Happy Easter to everyone! Hope instead of hard snowballs you will get a lot of chocolaty Easter goodies.

Heh heh. Kind of makes me feel less jealous towards all the Minnesotans who are spending their spring break in Florida!  :)

My sister's plane out of Florida was damaged  and grounded due to that hail and all the storms that went through.  Crazy weather all over, isn't it?  Happy Easter to you and your family!

Happy Easter!
Seems to me I remember several hailstorms in FL . . . one in particular a few years ago, as ds and I were setting out on a little boat trip - NOT.

WHAT THE HAIL IS HAIL?  Out here in the desert the only moisture we ever feel is when a vulture poops on us!  Sooooo . . .  it COULD be worse!  ;.)  

I've enjoyed your journal.

Come visit occasionally (I know you're busy), when you've got a nano-second.  LOL.  Cyndy
