Water

Dragonheart watching a hail storm(Click photo for a larger image)

Back at the beginning of March, something very strange happened! Solid bits of frozen water started falling from the sky! My humans called it hail. It was very interesting to watch, as I had never seen frozen water fall from the sky before!

I like the way you are looking up, watching the hail come down. You look really interested in it.

I've experience it myself personally (here in Malaysia). I was in the car when it started raining "small pieces of ice". I was terrified :)

Lulu said...

Your blog is adorable! I have a cat myself, but he's got tons of hair! So much in fact that we have him shaved sometime in the summer.

Excellent picture for the theme!

What a great idea for the water theme, i was out hiking when it was hailing once. It hurt a lot!

Ginabee said...

Frozen water ... I like it. Hail hurts - good thing you were inside.

ChupieandJ'smama said...

Very nice photo of the frozen water. Perfect for the theme. Happy Saturday :)

Patricia of Pollywog Creek said...

Ah, yes! Water does come in all three states of matter. Clever subject for the theme. I hope the hail didn't do any dammage. Have a great weekend, Dragonheart, and thanks for visiting Pollywog Creek.

Beautiful sphinx new experience. You were very brave.

GEWELS said...

You don't even look the least bit concerned. My water picture is liquid, not solid like yours.

Lauren S. said...

I bet that did seem strange! Great photo!

Write From Karen said...

And I'm so glad you're INSIDE observing the hail and not OUTSIDE.

It hailed like that the day we brought my second son home from the hospital (after he was born). Premonition? lol

Parker said...

It's GOOD to be inside!

lessake said...

Cats are so much fun :)

Connie said...

Oh that weather stuff can be pretty tricky. Remember hail hurts your head and snow doesn't.lol

Great picture.

Take care,
Connie

I love this photo: my cats are never as aware as Dragonheart of the events outside as they watch in a window. He is an amazingly intelligent cat.

Gattina said...

Yeah, yeah hail that's a strange thing, fortunately you are not allowed to go out and get it on your head !
(My cats and funny stories)

tray said...

*pshh* whatever! those humans don't know what they're talking about. it's actually pieces of the sky that are falling...

:-)

Ma said...

We used to get hail every now and then on the Big Island during the winter season. We don't have it on Oahu.

Thanks for stopping by.

Forty Paws said...

Hail scares us a lot! It makes way too much noise!

Morgen said...

Oh honey, I just want to wrap you in a warm fleece blankie when I see you looking at the hail!
Glad you were inside!!!

SJ said...

Good thing you were inside! We have hail from time to time, it hurts when it pelts you!

Have a great weekend!

Vader's Mom said...

I'm intereted in the hail too, Dragonheart. As long as I'm at work or at home. It's no fun to be driving or playing in!!

Great photo as always! :)

Yoshi said...

Hail is nothing to kid about, i tell you! Thanks for coming by!

letha said...

You wouldn't want to be out in it, it would hurt

PowersTwinB said...

Oh I see your humans also got hail where you live Thanks for visiting my photo today!

Heart of Rachel said...

Hi Dragonheart. I heard about the hail and glad that you're safely inside the house during that time.

eph2810 said...

I can imagine how surprised you were when the hail hit the ground. I am sure it was noisy too...

Have a wonderful weekend--happy hunting.

PastorMac's Ann said...

Water can be fascinating in all it's different forms. Nice picture of you and great choice for the Hunt.

srp said...

Dragonheart... that is really scary. Was their lightening with it? You should stay away from the windows. I bet it covered the ground like a little bit of snow does. At least you were safe inside.

LoveMyStarr said...

I'll bet you were glad you weren't outside although the ice probably would have been great to chew on!

The Furry Kids said...

Hail sounds kinda cool. We haven't seen that yet - only snow. Your mom and dad take really cool pictures of you. You always look so distinguished and handsome.
Love,
Titus, Tazo, & Earl Grey

Jane said...

I wondered what you would do for water. I bet you are probably not a fan of getting wet!

Danella said...

What an awesome photo! That cat is adorable.

Thanks for stopping by

Patti said...

You are such a handsome kittie!

Sanni said...

That´s a pretty cool picture, Dragonheart. I can´t remember when I saw hail in my part of Germany...

Oh, and I like the cute mouse-toy you have there by your side!

Expat Traveler said...

lovely! Great action pic really... seeing something for the first time is very interesting.

Skittles said...

Cat photos are so nice. The doesn't look happy to see all that rain though. Poor kitty!

Thanks for the visit to my blog.

The Cats Stephens said...

That is such a neat picfur. Sometimes, after it rains here, our mama will open up the window and let us watch the steam.

Arlene said...

We haven't had hail in so long! I kinda miss it!
Thanks for stopping by my blog, and as you know, I played too :-)

Mr. Zenith & the Fancidots Gang said...

WOW Dragonheart!
That must have been very noisy! Meomy sez when frozen water falls from the sky, sometimes if it's big, it even dents CARZ -- but we live in the south, so I've never seen it.

Zenith

Biker Betty said...

Dragonheart, I'm so glad you got to see hail. I love to watch it fall from the sky when we get it. It's great to listen to, too. Thanks for visiting and have a nice weekend.

DaisyMae Maus said...

Dragonheart ... That's really a terrific photo of hail. I've seen it here in California, but Mom wouldn't let me get close enough to it to check it out properly (you and I both know that I would have eaten it).

Lynn said...

Your cat sure looked so surprised with 'frozen water' falling from the sky.

Barbara said...

Glad you were inside for it!

Just Sharlene and My Spice Cats said...

Oooo...that must be so exciting for you. The Spice Cats have never seen hail before. Then again, they have never seen snows before either.

RobK said...

Great pic. I bet your cat was wondering what the heck was going on.

Cats ~ Goats ~ Quotes said...

Oh wow! It must have made a lot of noise falling on the glass. We're glad you were safe inside!!
