Just had a pretty serious hail storm. Most of the hail was the size of Lima beans, but with some being larger, like marbles! Looks like we still have windshields, I will check to see if there is damage tomorrow. Last week our neighbor bought a new Accord Crosstour, I hope it's OK! I've never been in a hail storm like this, it was quite loud and I thought for sure we would loose a window. The ground was covered in ice pellets, then the torrential rain started.

I used to like hail when I was a kid. Now, I worry about property damage. That would be kinda scary to be out in it.

Tuesday April 3rd

From Gargano Peninsula, Puglia

It is mild however, overcast and about 60 degrees ... with breezes ...

My colleagues tell me it is about 17 Degrees Centig in Madrid Capital with overcast skies and light drizzle ...

Semana Santa, Holy Week or Easter Week, it is always cloudy and chilly. Perhaps the Caribbean next year.

Happy Holidays.
Margi.

After getting almost warm enough to turn on the a/c yesterday afternoon, Mother Nature showed off with one of her magnificent thunderstorms lasting for hours. I'm amazed we didn't lose power.

This morning a comfortable 67 and clear skies.
