Cold as Ice

January 29, 2010

Despite the fact that it's January, the weather has been especially mild this winter, with the exception of a few days here and there. Last week we had one of those exceptions when a hailstorm hit our neighborhood a little bit out of the blue. I was driving Nicholas and Danielle home from school, and it had just started sprinkling. As we drove closer to home, we realized that it was beginning to hail--lightly at first, and then quite earnestly. Now I know some of you may live with pretty inclement weather all winter, but this was a pretty novel experience for our kids. They couldn't wait til we got home, just so they could stand outside and be pelted with the pebble-sized ice falling from the sky.
