I guess I would have been a terrible meteorologist. It was raining this morning, but I didn’t bring my rain coat. I was planning to make a bank deposit and get a haircut, but neither of those was so pressing as to get me out in the weather without proper gear.
I glanced out the window again in the afternoon – no rain. So I strolled down to the bank, made my deposit, and then stopped at the barber’s. About the time I got in the chair, there was a very loud thunder boom. Thirty seconds later, the hail came. It was pouring outside. It only last a couple of minutes, but I’d guess we got at least an inch of rain during that time. We also got a half inch (in places) of hail.
It all blew over by the time I was ready to leave.
