The storm lasted a good 20+ minutes and at times it sounded like a huge bucket of golf balls were being dumped on our house!
It was scary and exciting all at the same time. Ryan was fascinated with seeing the hail and begged to touch it. Chris (who was just as fascinated) got Ryan into his rain coat and took him outside so they could both investigate the stuff that fell from the sky!
This is a picture of the largest ball they found. It was the size of a half dollar coin!
Here is Ryan in his froggy rain coat (which is way too small for him!) standing in the rain and having fun!
Checking out the HAIL. This was a great educational experience on weather!
Then all of a sudden we saw this...
Below is a montage of video clips that Chris took of the weather...
- In the beginning of the video, Chris and Ryan are comparing the hail balls to the balls that are in our Hungry Hippo Game. Ryan calls them peanuts (don't ask why) and as soon as he saw the hail, he told us that peanuts were falling from the sky! hahaha.
- As I edited the clips, I couldn't help but notice a few things. Most importantly, I am completely convinced that our shrubs/bushes located in the front of our house need to be replaced. We've wanted to do this for 4 years now but haven't taken the time to do it. Mark my words...we WILL find the time this summer! And lastly, I need to take my snowman stakes down and put them away already. I mean it is Spring now, right? :)
