This is not snow, but hail:
It hit while I was at work, so I couldn't do anything about it except watch it come down and worry about my tomatoes and peppers.
When I finally got home and checked on them, most looked a little battered, but I figured they'd survive:
So I breathed a sigh of relief and went inside for some supper. And then a second round of hail hit, bigger than the first. I grabbed a hard hat to protect my noggin and ran outside to cover everything I could with pots. I don't know if I got there in time, though. As soon as it gets first light this morning, I'll go out and check on everything. I have a feeling the news will not be good...
UPDATE: Damage Report
Sugar snap pea
Chiopas wild cherry tomato
Badly Battered, with questionable prospects:
One "Aunt Ruby German Green" and one "Paul Robeson" (tomatoes)
One "Big Jim," one poblano (Peppers)
Battered but will surely recover:
One "Aunt Ruby German Green," one "Paul Robeson"
One "Big Jim," one poblano
One "Sweet Chocolate" pepper
Italian flat leaf parsley
Not as bad as it could have been.
