Hail Storm



The next post was supposed to be the completion of the greenhouse. The roof is on, lots of plants already started, and pictures will soon follow, but yesterday we experienced a first on the farm and just have to post it. We had been hearing that there was bad weather on the way. With tornadic activity not far from us, the sky looked a little strange and it seemed like the clouds were not moving in their typical direction. I looked out the window to the back field and the yaks were running around. Wishing I had my camera to catch their activity I noticed it was hailing! It started slowly and then just really came down, eventually turning to pouring rain. I'm sure the yaks had no idea what was happening. We had never seen hail like this before. All the animals are fine, including the yaks. And now the greenhouse, only assembled a couple of weeks, has been hail tested, and to our relief, passed.

Pin It Now!

That thought crossed our minds. This hail was relatively small but gives you an idea of what damage it can do.

You have a lot of faith! I'd have had a knot in the pit of my stomach when I realized it was hailing on the new greenhouse. Makes me think about the plagues on Egypt and how livestock could easily be killed by large hailstones. Yours look the same as ours did the time hail broke the rear window out of our car, except ours were baseball-size. Makes you glad you can take cover!
