Thor, God of Thunder!

Kee-reist! What the heck did I do to deserve that? I knew that the potential for pop-up thunderstorms existed this afternoon. Thunderstorms are one of the four weather conditions I don’t [power]walk in but, when it was time for my afternoon [power]walk: 1) it was sunny, 2) I took a [broken] umbrella, and 3) my afternoon walking route snakes throughout the neighborhood in such a way that I can get back home fairly quickly from most points. So, off I went. And then it started to rain. And then it started to rain great big drops. So I opened my [broken] umbrella. And then it started to thunder. And lightning. And big gusts of wind. And, uh, HAIL!?! My [broken] umbrella was really no match. I made it home safely and Mouse did too, reporting huge vee-hickle-drowning puddles in the streets. Now there are sirens everywhere. Accidents? Lightning fires? I dunno. Hey Thor, what did I do to deserve this? Was it that I was handling [human] ashes today? Or was it that I posted to the A2 School Cranks’ listserve today? Heck, I was just trying to shut down a Commie High basher!

    And it all started off so innocently. I heard gentle pelting and looked out the window. It was sunny outside and these tiny hail pellets looked like the stars you see in your eyes when you bump your head. Then, the heavens opened and the hail got big and the thunder started. YIKES! I’m glad you and Mousey got home safe. Kate

    Thor had his little tantrum in GB *yesterday* – without the hail (so far as I can tell…)!!!
