In like a lion and out like a lamb.
Well that's what's SUPPOSED to happen but let me tell you somethin', my friends, I'm pretty sure that ol' lion must have eaten the lamb.
So here we are at the end of March and do you know what happened to me yesterday? DO you?
Not a lot of snow, mind you, but still, it was snow. I had to walk through the white stuff and everythin'.
And do you know what happened to me the day before that? What happened on Monday? DO you?
I, Seville the Cat, had never even seen hail before. Well I don't think I had, anyway. Maybe somethin' kinda resemblin' hail, but not actual hail. More like uh.... Um... Shaved ice, I do believe. But Monday?
Well on Monday it was rainin' peas, I tell you. Rainin' peas! Only they weren't green like peas usually are, but white. Also, they weren't actual peas. They were pea-sized chunks of ice.
And it was weirder than that, my friends. Weirder that that! Yes, weirder than packages of frozen white peas that weren't actually peas bein' pelted at me. To tell you the truth, it was weirder than weird. It was...
Spooky, to say the least.
You see, only moments earlier, the temperature was mild and the sun was breakin' through the clouds. In fact, at one point I looked up at the blue sky and sunshine and thought it was gonna be a lovely, beautiful day. 'Cept for those dark ominous clouds off in the not-too-distant distance, of course.
But that's when it got weird. One moment the sun was shinin', then it got all dark, then the wind whipped up, and then...
THEN THE FROZEN PEAS BEGAN THEIR ATTACK.
But all that aside...
What worries me most...
What worries me most is that Friday is April Fools' Day and if Mother Nature was hurlin' frozen peas that aren't peas at me on Monday, WHAT THE MOUSES IS SHE GONNA DO ON THE FIRST?
Too scary to even think about, I think. Too scary to think about, for sure.
But now that I AM thinkin', I have a question to ask: Is it April Fools' Day or April Fool's?
Guess it all depends on the number of fools.
Remember to mask up, too.
Oh dear, Seville!ReplyDelete
Best to stay inside for at least a few more days!
We had an ice storm last night, and now great sheets of ice are falling from the roof as the temps rise.
At least we escaped the ice where we are...but not the high winds. The roaring March Lion.Delete

Hail like that is scary and damaging, we are glad you didn't get buried under it.ReplyDelete
Years ago (1977), when petcretary was living in Halifax, there was also a big hail storm, and the hail was about the size of peas, too...and there was so much we had to use snow shovels to clear it away! Yikes!
