It's official...

The weather is getting *very* strange...

The switch from warm, sunny fall weather to the cold and rainy variant was normal. What wasn't, was the mini thunderstorm that we had this afternoon. I was in the bathroom, trying to decide between continuing to read LoTR for the umpteenth time and finally taking a shower and getting dressed, when suddenly, everything went dark outside and there was this flash of lightning, followed by a loud peal of thunder. It continued like that for a few minutes, then it started to rain. Or so I thought.

Nope. It was hailing. And it went from small, light hailstones to ones as big as hazelnuts.

An hour later, the hail's still lying in the gardens and on the roofs, looking just like winter's begun.

Wow, that looks really freaky! I hope this winter won't be a super bad one.

It is! Right now it keeps switching from rain to hail to sun and back to rain again. But it's cold. I'm not sure whether I should try to take all my plants indoors today... >.> I have to check to make sure we don't have frost tonight.

Well, we had a *lot* of fruits on our trees this fall. That is usually an indication for a long, hard winter to come. I really hope it isn't... >.< *starts looking into housing in the Bahamas*

Ah, so the weather's being odd in your neck of the woods too? We've been having lovely cool weather, yet tomorrow's going to be 83 degrees. Ick. :)

We had about two weeks of wonderful fall weather, golden sunshine, warm during the day, cool at night, dry. And from one day to the next it's switched over to almost-winter. You really can't keep up with that anymore... >.

Oje, Hagel ist echt ätzend, vor allem für den Garten. Ich hoffe deine Pflanzen haben nicht allzu sehr gelitten.

Ne, Götter sei Dank, nicht. Aber ich hab gleich mal das Überwinterungsregal im Flur aufgebaut und die nicht winterharten Pflanzen reingeholt. Sicherheitshalber. Auf 1000 m hat's schon geschneit heute. >.< Die ersten Vorboten des Winters kommen mit aller Macht...

WOW that looks really cold and freakish.

It is. I took the plants in (the ones that don't do well with frost) and there was a thick layer of hailstones in the pots... >.>
