On this hot summer day, I could do with some hail right now. In the Sacramento valley, snow is a rare occurrence since we are at sea level. Hail is the closest thing to snow here. Not that I like it, but when it falls this thickly, we can pretend to make a snowball or a miniature snowman.
This photo shows how thickly the hail fell on my backyard deck in late spring.
In this photo, a late October hail storm hit us while at Apple Hill in the Sierra Foothills. When we left the house that morning, it was sunny and warm. By the time we got here, 35 miles away, we were greeted with cold, drizzly conditions. This hail storm happened in the afternoon while we visited the Jack Russell Brewery.
Hail is the theme for this week’s One Word Photo Challenge hosted by talented photographer Jennifer Nichole Wells.
