Hail to the chickens?! Sudden thunderstorm came up….

Look how quickly the ground was covered!

Hail everywhereLooks like snow

We heard the thunder first and saw some lightening. I decided to gather the girls and get them in the coop. Within a few minutes the hail was pounding the house, the cars, the new flowers we planted. The hail was the size of blue berries or small grapes but was so forceful. Luckily the hail was not quite big enough to damage the cars but many of the flowers were de-petalled. The chickens and the rest of our pets are fine but it was pretty violent. Now the world is steaming because it’s too warm for ice to hang around long. I tell, ya, raising chicks is full of fun and excitement.

  1. Awesome pictures, especially the last one!

    We’ve definitely had a few nasty hail storms in Phoenix. It’s not common for cars to be totaled because of it. Luckily yours wasn’t too bad. I’m glad all of the chicks, cars, houses, etc are safe.

    It was crazy loud and fun to record! Luckily no one or nothing was injured during our bored hailstorm. I then had to drive to work in it! Lol. 🙂
