hail

today's weather forecast showed a 0% chance of precipitation.  we just had a fair amount of hail come down---enough to turn everything white.  as hail goes it was pretty benign.  it was like little, pointy snowballs, not the hard, icy spheres i'm used to calling hail.




the ducks were pretty excited by all the little white balls jumping around on the ground and started running around eating them.


zane likes to catch it in the air like he does with snow.


i think i'm going to count this as some form of snow rather than hail.  the texture and coverage was far more snowlike than hail.  i can understand why the inuit people have so many words for snow.  it doesn't only come down in pretty little flakes.  




time to put another log on the fire.
