Since it was a new experience I decided to walk out into the snow pellet storm to record it. Lucky for me snow pellets are less dense that hail, so they do less damage to crops, unprotected heads, and cameras than hail of the same size would have done. Fortunately, I decided to ignore the forecasts of the
blind liars meteorologists, who said we would only have rain and not dip below freezing, and took steps to protect some of the less hardy plants in our garden before the snow pellets arrived:
The snow pellets were followed by a dry thunder storm and then a light snow shower. Most of America is anxiously awaiting summer and we are still wondering when spring will arrive! Have you had unusual weather this spring?
