Hail attacks San Francisco!

It started with a flash. Was that lightning, or any one of a hundred things that could be flashing on Pine Street below us?

Stephanie’s ear piqued: thunder! A little later, thunder again. Then it started pouring, then we realized it was hail (!) and ran downstairs.

Only minutes after the storm – that’s some efficient publishing. I knew you would be on it quick.

I admit it, I felt the wild call of the blogger gods (as “content” fell from the sky, quite literally, and into my lap).

But dammit, I wasn’t the first person with a hail photo on flickr! I should have just uploaded there first and blogged second, as if its even possible to get an edge on those mobloggers.



It was “pea-sized” out at Ocean Beach. Started once with mostly rain, then a second time about ten minutes later with mostly hail (less rain), and the hail was a bit larger and in much larger quantity.
