    Extreme Weather

    Tuesday evening, June 2nd, we had a large thunderstorm roll through the area.  I thought that we were just in for a rain storm.  No!  It was a “pound your garden to pieces” storm with rain and hail.  The total precipitation from the storm was 1.63 inches of moisture.  In some parts of the valley there were home flooded.  We had so much hail that the down spouts from the roof looked like the ice dispenser at the 7-11.  The next day, some of the hail was still underneath the rain spout.

    I have not checked the apples to see what kind of damage that they might have received.  They might be small enough that they have escaped, but I doubt it.
