sunshine & unicorns: a blog about love, learning, and life in the upper midwest

14 August 2009

the sky opened up

It got really, really dark this morning, and then hailed!

Most of the hail was little, but some was big!

Luckily, I had tucked my car away safely under a bridge only moments prior. (This photo was taken later, after the storm.)

Injuries sustained: thumb and finger cut on umbrella while trying to wrestle with it in a downpour during the car-moving process. No hail damage though!
