Just above freezing, and a heavy thunderstorm comes through, dropping sleet, pea-sized hail, and heavy rain.
The lightning was striking within a few miles of the house. The thunder shaking the house and windows..

The photos are from about 40 minutes after the rain stopped,, the slush and hail/sleet was much deeper, but I didn't get the photos
taken in time.

Was snowing here this morning, but as the temps rose it all quickly melted. Was just 80° last week! :roll:

Now this feels like spring. Wet,damp,and chilly.
I worked in the shop today and it was chilly.Took a shower with the free DHW and stayed in there 10 minutes longer to warm the chilled bones up,and it felt good to be all warmed up again.
