We interrupt this program...


A hail storm preempted yesterday's Lil' Kickers soccer games.
Not too long before taking these pictures, I was dozing in the warmth of the sun in my backyard.
Here in northern Illinois you have to be ready for anything.

    Oh my!
    We've had quite a bit of rain off and on and storms making their way through. No hail though.

    Goodness!
    Sounds like Oklahoma!
    Is that a hail mower??

    Sorry that hail ruined your day off to see the game opening!
    We are finally having some more rain. I think our storm will come your way.
    You can call in sick when the games start.

    Been there, done that. Only just one day before you. (Sigh.) Then this past weekend was windy! Bad windy.

    remember when hail destroyed your little garden in Chicago a few years back... it's like Winter is still wrestling with Spring... lilacs blooming here, finally.

    There's a nice little church for sale right here in tornado alley.

    Bring the whole family down.

    So how big was that hail? I'm guessing about 1/2" or so?
