Sky Watch #41
Thanks so much to Klaus and all the team members who bring us Sky Watch each week.
A couple of weeks ago we woke to rolling thunder in the distance. It kept coming closer, until it was really booming, lightning flashing, and skies darkening. I drove up to the bay, which is where we usually see the big show in such weather. But I was surprised to see this instead.
There was still a pretty big patch of blue up there at 7:10 am.
As I started home again, I looked to the east. That was quite a different story.
Then came the hail.
And by 8:15 it was all over. This was what I could see from my front door.
