Rain and Hail, Oh My!

It's 11 am here, and we've already had nearly three quarters of an inch (about 18 mm) of rain.  Well, actually, for the past half hour or so it's been a mixture of rain and hail.  The individual pieces of hail are about the size of a kernel of corn, but there are so many of them that they're collecting into piles that look an awful lot like snowfall.  The air temperature is still well above freezing, so the hail is melting very quickly.

Jeez, it feels good to have this most affirmative end to the fire season!
