Hail Storm

The approaching storm

Ominous sky

Last week we experienced seven minutes of hail, wiping out nearly half of the apple crop at two of our orchards. June is a month to watch for hazardous weather in our area. Several years ago we were wiped out on the same day in June, two years in a row.

Thankfully, all sled dogs found their way to their dog houses before hail the size of golf balls came crashing down; just big enough to cause serious injury. The storm did provide a much needed respite from the 90 degree temperatures that had plagued us for over a week. The change in temps revived the dogs. Its hard to believe that some haven't begun to shed.
