Hail, and How!

Yup. August 1 and out of relatively calm day, the clouds gathered, the skies opened, (like, "can't see half way up the street" opened,) the wind kicked up, and we got hail.

Hail.

It's going to be interesting going out tonight to see "Guardians of the Galaxy," methinks.

ETA: And thunder. Forgot the thunder. And it's all still going on.

Oh, I seem to be hearing about hail all the time in France. I don't know whether the weather is just that crazy this year or whether I simply didn't notice how often it seemed to happen in previous years, but holy shit… can't tell you the amount of times we got to see farmers who had just lost half their crops in the news.

Anyway—I hope this calms down and you can get to the movies safely =P

Your hail sounds much more serious than the pea-sized bits we got for about 15 minutes. It has now ended, I can say with much thanks to the gentled elements, and if I can just get my stories done, we'll be able to enjoy Intergalactic Swashbuckling tonight!

Yeah, in my area it never got very bad, but some of the madness that happened in other places was not pea-sized. More like tennis balls o.O

Good news! Have a lovely time :)

Ick. I hope the weather calms down for y'all. I also hope you have a fun time at the film. :D

Hi there! The weather did indeed calm down, and we got to the movie and enjoyed it a whole hell of a lot. (When you can cry over a CGI houseplant and an equally-CGI'd homicidal raccoon, yeah, it's a good night at the movies. Heh.)

That's so weird, it's just been thunder and light rain by me! Maybe the hail is heading this way next. :|

Did you ever get the storm? I think you were south and a little west of me, so it might have passed you by.

I don't think we did! Maybe I'm too close to the lake?

Oh, yeah; but the storm didn't last too long, and we were able to go out and see the movie.

How's by you, as they say around here?

*hugs back*

YAY!! Hope you enjoyed, sweetie!!

Mmmm...hanging in. Just gotta make it to the next month, you know? Hopefully we can get ourselves better set by then. Unfortunately, the kids go back to school on the 13th and we are just...being run ragged. Oi.

*HUGS*

I don't know about bad weather (it is beautiful here) but I am jealous you are getting to go to GOTG. My loving wife isn't interested and my kids have seen it already. I will have to wait till it is on Netflix.

Aww, you should go by yourself; it's great fun! Or find a buddy who'd be willing to batchelor-movie-night it with you!

The storm didn't last too long, so ultimately it was more of a weather glitch than anything. Hail in summer, though; unusual for inside the dcity limits at the very least.

I don't go to movies alone. It always seemed like a creepy thing to me (no logic behind that thought... it is just how it feels for me).

Most of my buddies in Winnipeg are not the guys night out types. The only two exceptions are either very broke and work evenings or so busy it is ridiculous (also I don't know that DDC still goes to movies).

Hmmm; maybe one of your kids would like to see it again? A thought ....

This year has been CRAZY for hail everywhere it seems. I don't know if it's like hearing a word on the radio or not, but I was caught in two ridiculous hail storm last month (and was very very grateful not to have my windshield smashed, because many were).

I hope that Guardians is great! It won't be making it's way to the local theatre for at least three weeks, but once it does... :D

Goodness, your hail storms put our to shame - and I'm glad you didn't get your windshield smashed.

Guardians was a hell of a lot of fun; definitely one to go to when it arrives in town!

Eeep! Here it's brilliant sunshine... and freezing cold.

That's right; you're in the middle of winter right now - I hope the sunshine makes up for the cold!
