April showers have arrived.

We started our drive to school in misty rain and somewhere between here and there it changed to jumbo drops. We were quiet and the rain was loud! Rain like that doesn’t happen often and never lasts long. By the time we got to school it was misty again.

What causes large rain drops? Short answer, updrafts. Read more about it here.

    • I have seen hail only a few times. Once last year summer or the summer before. It was pretty strange collecting balls of ice that fell from the sky and in the summer!
