Summer Hail Storm – July 28, 2011
It has been a long hot summer stretch here in Upstate New York. I know my human-owners Dad is getting tired of running the air-conditioner all the time. He keeps saying something about “fake air”. Personally, he needs to take it from me and my human-owner PVT Ben. He doesn’t know what fake air is until he’s had to put on a gas mask and go through the gas chamber at Basic Training. (But, I’m getting off topic here).

You can imagine everyone’s surprise this week when we had a major storm with ice! Look at this hail! Yes, that is a pile of hail stones I’m standing in. It’s a good thing I always wear my ACU boots or that would have been very cold on my paws. It’s also worth noting my human-owners Dad did not pile a bunch of hail stones together for this picture.
This pile of hail stones is exactly what it looked like on our back landing.
