It hasn't rained here in forever. We're in a serious drought and have been for a while. I think we've had only one rainy day since early May. That's ridiculous. It really is.
Yesterday, in the late afternoon, the skies darkened and started rumbling. And then it started raining...or so I thought. But it seemed a lot louder than your average rain storm. It was hail and it was cool!
On a side note....my snapdragons haven't bloomed all summer because it was so hot and dry. Now that it's November they are looking great. Same for my roses. Bizarre. It will be spring at Thanksgiving this year. Crazy weather.
