All Hail the Trampoline

A couple of weeks ago, in the midst of a bright and sunny afternoon, the sky suddenly went black and we experienced a fifteen minute thunder, lightning and hail storm; five minutes after the storm stopped, the sky was utterly cloudless again. It was rather bizarre.

The kids took full advantage of the hail: Eating it; and jumping in it.  Witness their pleasure!



  1. Yes, wasn't that a crazy storm? It caught us at a splash pad and my three year old son (in Canada since December) was absolutely amazed (and delighted) by the "ice cubes" falling from the sky! It was our slowest walk home ever because we kept having to stop and snack on the hail stones...
    Thanks for sharing those pictures - trampolining with hail sure looks fun!

  2. Hey Sonja -
    yeah, it was pretty bizarre...and oddly wonderful! I love the thought of stopping to snack on the hail...great visual!
