Day 27 of 365: Hail...But Not to the Queen
Woke up this morning to sunny skies and then...out of nowhere...the showers came.
Ah, but England wasn't going to let me down. Not today...
It also managed to HAIL within the SAME hour I took the last photo (oopsie on the slight reflection). Click on the photo to see the little hail "pebbles" in the road. I guess 'so much for my walk.'
Get this as well -- they're forecasting snow for this week sometime as well. Matt commented that we may just have a "white wedding." Eek! No way! I've been monitoring weather.co.uk for the past 5 days on the 10-day forecast to see what they project for Saturday. It has changed every day from sunny, to partly sunny...to windy, to rainy...so I really don't know what to expect. Right now it says only a 10% chance of precipitation, but that could change in the next 8 hours.
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
