That was some storm

I wish I lived in Boston, so I could say that we had a wicked awesome storm last night and have it sound convincing, but I don't so I will share some photos instead.  We had two very hot and humid days, which sent us scrambling to put the window a/c units in our old house and me trying to remember exactly how to keep the downstairs of our house cool when it's more than 90 degrees outside.  We try to tough it out without the a/c as much as possible, but when you can't go to the pool, it's hard to cool off. 

So, here's what the storm looked like here:


Someone, although I am not naming names, thought it would be fun to go out and try to collect some hail. Then, that unnamed person got hit with some hail and realized that hail is just like cool, icy rocks falling from the sky so she got her kids and huddled under the gazebo on the patio. Then, that person may have yelled for her husband to help them (though not sure what she could have expected him to do). One of her children may have been running in and out of the hail and gotten a huge welt on the side of his body when a chunk of hail hit him. Of course, it's all speculation.

Here is one of the pieces of hail:


Luckily, this is what we got when it was over:


And, we got a much cooler day, to go with that rainbow!
