iPhone-o-Gram! Hail!!

We are under tornado watch until 11pm. I am of course in the basement as always---

I braved being pounded to get a pic of the hail coming down on my back deck---joined by much rain, thunder and lightning.

Definitely a good day to stay in and putter in the studio!

Bonnie go back to the studio! Tornado's and hail are nothing to play with.....and by the way keep that weather down home, don't let it follow you to Iowa when you come. We will get plenty of it later this year I'm sure!

agree with Iowa Comfort...... hail doesn't always mean a tornado, but tornadoes ALWAYS have hail. be extra cautious.

The storm front hasn't reached us here in the Sandhills of NC.... good evening to stay inside....

Hope you didn't get any damage from the hail!

Annette said...

no need for excuses.......stay in the studio doing what you enjoy, leave "mother nature" to herself, as long as no one suffers!!!

Would this be the same storm that bugged all of us Californians last week ? Stay safe !,,

Hail fascinates me--I love to watch it come down. When thunder and lightening wasn't involved my kids loved to run around in it. Of course, we never get anything much bigger than what you show. I've never seen any larger than a dime here, and that is rare.

Oh be careful......don't mess with mother's nature!
Scary stuff...be sure to let us know you are okay tomorrow,

Meanwhile it is 60 here in upstate NY...go figure.

Happy Sewing :0)

The thunder rocked the house for an hour or so today...good day to stay inside and stitch!

Stay close to the basement. Make sure you have your hand work and a good light.
Here is CA we do not have tornados. We do the shake and freak thing.

Please let us know you are well once the "watch" is over.

Amy Laura said...

Yup, a great day for cleaning, sorting, and quilting. Please stay safe and don't go taking any more crazy pics!

Stay safe in your basement! For a change we have beautiful sunshine here in the Pacific Northwest so I spent most of the day out on the lawnmower. Rain is supposed to be back tomorrow so I can play in the sewing room then!

Suddenly I feel like a wuss complaining about the return of cold weather and 2 feet of snow still on the ground.....Hope you'll be safe and suffer no damage to your garden and house.

You should have put some of that hail into the freezer. You could have fun with it when summer comes!

More horizontal surfaces. At least you don't have to clean those off. Stay safe.
