The skies finally opened and the rain finally fell. At least until early afternoon. When I took a walk at around 2:15 the skies were only partly cloudy and there was a fair amount of sunshine making its way to the pavement. By the time I left work at 2:45 the sky looked like the photo below. By the time the bus dropped me at my stop, it was hailing. By the time I walked home, I’d been hailed harder than Caesar and had very wet pants (from the rain and hail, not from fear or incontinence). The weather changes on a dime here. I nabbed this photo from today’s edition of The Seattle Times.
