What season is this? Winter? Spring? Monsoon?
It’s been weird around here. I’m wondering if it will be June before I get to plant a garden! I usually plant around April 15th.
As I was attempting to capture a neighbor’s escaped rooster, which was passionately dancing up and down the fence for our hens, these strange clouds blew in.
I shot several photos before the growing roars of thunder drove me inside.
A few moments later, here came a blast wind and of nickel-sized hail, spooking the poor rooster down the street.
After only three or four minutes, the hail changed to drenching rain, melting away most of the hail stones before I was able to capture any photos worth sharing.
Upon peeking outside later, it just looked like a calm, cloudy day. The rooster was back dancing for our hens, and there wasn’t even a wisp of wind to turn the weather vane fan in my garden.
In the last month, we’ve had temperatures ranging from the high 40s to the low 80s. One evening we are sitting on the couch wrapped in a blanket with the heater on, a couple of days later, we have the air conditioner blowing. Either way, the utility companies are happy. Lol
There’s a saying I’ve heard many times over the years: “If you don’t like the weather in Arkansas, just stick around because it changes every five minutes!”
