Two days ago, we had a huge storm. It had threatened to rain all day. Around dinner time the hail started without much warning. Luckily, I had taken down my laundry from the lines outside only an hour before.
We found out the next day that six cows were killed by lightning in a neighboring village.
Cows are left outside to eat, sleep and do whatever cows like to do in the ‘wild’. However, storms like the other day make it a little dangerous to be so free.
Below are some photos I took of the hail.
The hail on our bedroom window sill. I still need to clean the window sill from winter. So, ignore the dirt…
The hail resembled snow on the ground. Look at the garden! It is full of water.
Here is a photo from the kitchen window.
I believe the dots are hail while the small white streaks in the photos are rain.
The weather has been rainy here in the Jura. I haven’t been able to get out to much with the kids. We don’t want to go far for fear of getting stuck in the forest in a storm. I do not want to end up like one of those six cows!
Last summer (rained a month straight) and this past winter (snow – Swiss style) prepared me for this rainy season.
We have perfected indoor play.
