Weird Weather

Yesterday, something very strange happened! Solid bits of frozen water starting falling from the sky in chunks! Yet it wasn't soft like the snow stuff we had back for a week in January. These were solid chunks of frozen water! Besides, it was warm out, with the temperature around 8°C (46°F)!

My humans called these bits of frozen water "hail" and this "hail" made an interesting noise as it fell to the ground. I watched this frozen water falling with great interest. Our living room has huge windows that go from the floor almost all the way to the ceiling, so I had a very good view of this exciting weather!

It was also very windy, with the winds blowing at 55 km/hr (34 mph) and gusts up to 87 km/hr (54 mph)! Needless to say, I was fascinated by all the movement outside!

After a while, the hail stopped falling, and it quickly melted since it was warm out. It was sure interesting to watch while it was happening though!

Wait until it hails enough to cover the ground like snow. It has done that here before, talk about weird.
Love ya.

You look very interested. You are quite an alert kitty. I love looking at you when you are thinking. I believe you are wondering whether these little balls would be fun to push around... or maybe just to sniff and investigate.
Wonderful pictures!

That is very exciting! We had hail a few weeks ago when Mom on travel. I was really interested, so Dad took me out on the porch. I wanted to go right back inside!

You are brave to look and listen to the hail. Maybe Dragonheart is the perfect name for you. I am scared of hail, and I need to run under my human's bed to be safe.

Hail is very exciting, isn't it? Sometimes it's as big as a golf ball--and it could hurt a sweet kitty like yourself. You look gorgeous sitting there watching that hail!

Wow, Dragonheart! That's wild and woolly weather. I've never seen big ol' ice chunks fallin' out of the sky either, though some white, flaky stuff fell which Momma and Daddy call snow. We didn't get a lot of it, though.

Those are great pictures! You look so cute, watchin' the weather. Hey, maybe you should go on TV and be a WeatherKitty!

You look so cute watching the hail, Dragonheart - and not scared at all! (I think I would be scared.)

Hi Dragonheart, I lived in Germany when I was a young girl. My dad was in the American Air Force, and we were stationed in Bitburg (very near Luxembourg). One day we were doing a volksmarch in France, and we had every weather known to man in the 2 - 2 1/2 hour span of the walk. Rain, snow, sleet, hail, freezing rain, sun - everything. Anyway, I love reading about your adventures. Tara (not the cat)

Dragonheart, in those photos, you look like a very regal, carved statue!

We get hail here too, big stuff, like small balls that would knock me out if I stayed out in it, so I always race inside when it hails.
