The last few weeks in Pittsburgh, PA. the weather has been so up and down, one minute it has been raining the next it has been clear and beautiful. I am never sure what the day will hold weather-wise but I can tell you that this morning was an unusual day in Pittsburgh. The sun seemed to be offering itself a bit with a peep here and there through the clouds, but nothing solid. We had just listened to the weather and we heard Jon Burnett tell us to bring that rain gear, so of course I was wondering when the wet weather was headed towards us. I was getting my children ready for school, like any other morning and I suddenly heard thunder and this is my weather tale as I lavishly live life out loud with the Pittsburgh Hail Storm.
The Pittsburgh Hail Storm
We don’t get have a lot of precipitation in the way of hail in Pittsburgh, the last one I can recall was a few years ago in the Spring,so this definitely caught me off guard. As soon as the thunder boomed, I heard a lot of smacking against the window panes and what was falling … HAIL and lots of it, quite quickly. It looked at though we were being sprinkled with a fast moving snowstorm as the lawns and road began to cover.
The hail was bouncing off the car, off the driveway and even bouncing in the lawn, it was an incredibly crazy storm. These looked like little ping pong balls bouncing everywhere. Take a look at my short video of the storm this morning.
It seems that just as quick as it happened, it left and we then had a quick downpour of rain and now the skies are blue and clear. Like I said, I never know what the day is going to hold, but this was the quick passing weather and it was crazy! Here’s to lavishly living life out loud in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania!
