Today was the second day of our family reunion and we were sitting outside in my nephew’s backyard in Des Moines, minding our own business and talking one over the other when suddenly we were outshouted by a tremendous hailstorm with huge stones. Here are my nephews presenting some of the golfball-sized hail. Yes, I did get pelted with a few before running into the house and then grabbing a wash pan to put over my head and go back out to try to find my computer. No it wasn’t outside but safely inside in its case.
