One day, under a sky of sun and clouds, we were all playing in the yard when there was a sudden and unexpected flash of lightning and loud thunder claps. Since it is not safe to be outside when there is lightning, especially when the lightning and thunder occur close together, we headed for cover. As we were all running toward the house, we were pelted by hail (if the pellets bounce, it's hail) and heavy rain.
|It was dry at the bottom of the stairs!|

Thankfully, the downpour lasted only a few minutes. Since it is recommended that you stay indoors for at least a half hour after the last flash of lightning, we all napped before resuming our fun in the sun.
Last summer: drought
This summer: wacky rain and humidity
