Stormy Weather

Driving home from a Mother's Day Lunch at YoungerSon's house on Saturday, the only predictable thing about the weather was that it was unpredictable.

Bright sunshine and blue sky, then black clouds, high winds and torrential downpours, then sunshine again.

There were even reports of golf ball sized hail, but not on my route home, thank goodness.
Dents in my new car are exactly what I don't need.

That's the way it is sometime in Florida. You can see right where the rain stops...

I'm glad you avoided the hail too. That would be a shame to mess up your new car.

The weather was cold and miserable here in Montreal. What a yukky day to celebrate Mother's Day. I guess most people who had planned BBQ's had to change their plans.

Glad you had a good day with no hail stones to dent your car. LOL!

I guess that is the weather everywhere! Hope your Mother's Day lunch was great! I did not even notice the note! The recital was at The Sisters of the BVM retirement center....so very likely, Annie left a note about watering!

That was one crazy drive home . Glad your car didn't have to go through the hail. We had such a fantastic Mothers Day. Older son BBQed and everyone pitched in with food. Lazy, full of laughs and full of yummy food. I love having famiy around. We're having a heatwave. Full week in the high 80's and by Saturday it should be 95. A bit hot for our yard sale.

Belated Happy Mother's Day!

You have a new car? Have you posted a photo of it on here yet?

Quite a monsoon wasn't it..!
It's made everything grow like mad, especially the dandelions..!

We have had here in Finland at last sunny quite warm springdays and bird cherries are almost bloming.
A summer is coming to both of us - sooner or later :)

Your weather sounds quite horrendous. We don't see hailstones very often but it is always exciting when they happen - novelty value!
BTW, thanks for visiting my blog.

I find it interesting that hail is always compared to sporting equipment, and more specifically round balls used in sport. I always wondered whether they might say "hockey-puck-sized hail" in Canada, but I suppose not.

Nice skies. Just today, I taught a coworker how to use sunglasses on his compact camera for dramatic sky pics.

We've had that kind of umpredictable weather here all week. I've been going to work with both my umbrella and my sunglasses, and have been dressing in layers!

We had that kind of weather on Saturday. I could see and hear storms all around me in the morning but we escaped most of them until early afternoon. Then the sky opened. I love this kind of day.

Well, I like the pictures you took. The colours are so soft.
