Hail In Florida?


This past Saturday, I was having a very nice nappy on our lanai, when all of a sudden, there was this horrendous noise! I got off my chaise lounge, and went to look out the window, to see what was causing this noise. Mom said it was hail! OMD! I never saw or heard the likes of it before!
The three of us ventured slowly out the door. I was kinda skeered myself. The lanai and carport, both have a metal roof, and the hail made it sound like we were being shot at! OK, so maybe being shot at is a bit of an exaggeration, but it sure was terrifying! It lasted about 15 


minutes! My folks picked me up and carried me into the house, as I was trembling so. (another exaggeration!) Here, you can see me on my Mom's lap, getting all kinds of attention after that skeery ordeal! So that was the highlight of my weekend! How was yours?
Happy Monday, Miss Mindy

Oh no, that hail is really scarey stuff. We keep getting it too. Stay inside where you are nice and safe and warm :)xx

Oh dear! I am so sorry you got scared! Hail can hurt if it hits you! I am glad you were safe....

Wow Miss Mindy...this kind of freaked me out since you were just asking for ice! Glad you didn't suffer any damage or harm!

Bobbi said...

Woah... no wonder you were scared! We've been having some odd weather here in Western Md. Calling for a snow storm tonight... eek!

OMC Miss Mindy...that must have been very scary. Wonder how often FL receives a hail storm.

Tell you Mom thank you for her kind comments about my Grandp Peep.
Mom hopes to be able to visit my friends in the very early morning and in the afternoon.
Hugs from your BFFF,
Madi

That must have been scary for you Miss Mindy! Especially since you never seen hail before. Mother Nature's been playing some weird tricks on everyone!

Who'd a thunk hail in Florida?! 15 minutes is a long time!
Did you have a loud thunderstorm, too?
I would be scared too!
Good thing being on Mom's lap calmed you down, poor Miss Mindy!

Personally, I thinks dat is a most brilliant way to gets attention...pretend you is skeered and voila...ATTENTION galore!
We had hail yesterday.
