We had one hail of a hail storm yesterday!!! (That was very witty. No?)
Anyhoo, the above picture is not snow. It is hail from yesterday's storm. Our whole neighborhood looked like a winter wonderland.
And I must add, I was scared shitless.
I tend to be a touch dramatic. So, when Hubby had us hunker down in the tiny coat closet, it was all I could do not to scream, "LORD HELP US, DON'T LET US DIE!!!!"
But I am a responsible mother now, and had my kids and dignity to think about. Tess was unusually still and just laid on me, not moving a muscle. I made Bram hold onto my legs as tightly as possible. Why you ask? I just kept thinking of those terrible stories where the wind rips a child from his mother's arms. Told you I was dramatic.
Hubby stood outside the closet to listen to the news and watch the storm come in. As it did, I seriously thought it was the tornado that the news was predicting. It was the loudest sound I have ever heard.
Then it ended as quickly as it began.
And I was VERY relieved. Tess only had on a diaper. And I just knew our house was going to fall down around us and I was going to be the white trash mother holding a ravioli stained toddler wearing nothing but a diaper.
Whew! That was a close call.
