This is June 4th and it is Winter weather. We have had pouring rain all day and very cold temperatures. Now it is 9:30 pm and we are having lots of lightening and thunder. When we began to lose our TV satellite reception we thought we better go outside and see what the weather was. Major hail! I had to grab the camera and took these photos just minutes ago.
We are approximately 3400 feet elevation. Just 50 miles up the hill is the Tahoe area and it has been snowing most of the day up there. The news always shows travelers who are in shorts and flip-flops and not prepared at all for this winter weather.
I am thankful for the rain as it is helping to refill our pond after draining it down to make the repairs. However this hail is going to destroy our beautiful roses that are in full bud and bloom. Also our new hydrangeas and all the flowers that are so delicate will have massive destruction. Tomorrow when the weather clears we will assess everything and begin from there.
I am thankful for this weather and not having to worry about hurricanes or worse.
Carry on June and show us the sunshine of Summer to come...
