He's very handsome, isn't he? Happy birthday, Harley!
Anyroo, night before last we had a really wild storm (with a small "s") roll through here. There was thunder, lightning, rain, high winds and hail! Mom and Storm (with a capital "S") stayed up to enjoy the whole thing. Mom tried to see the hail out the window, to see how big it was, but couldn't really tell. The next day, we learned we'd had quarter- to golf ball-sized hailstones!
Some of the local TV stations aired some pictures bipeds sent in of the hail that fell - displayed next to a ruler, to make it easy to see the size. I thought, since I'm the resident meteorologist here at Ao4 HQs, I should do something like that, too. My sister and brothers were ... um ... in a very important meeting ...
so I asked Mom if we could set up a little display on the deck for them - for after their very important meeting.
I lined up my ruler just like they did on TV, so everysibe could tell how big the hailstones were.
I lined everything up very carefully... then called everysibe out to see my hailstone display. Here it is!
Wow. Our hailstones were very evenly formed. And they look just like the ice that comes from our magic cold box. Hee hee hee.
Hey... where did you Sibes go? C'mon ... it's April Fool's Day! I had to do something! Besides, Mom wouldn't let me go outside when the real hail fell to collect any! Hrumph!
