Hailpox

Mosaic and tiles covered in hailstones

Mosaic and tiles covered in hailstones

The photo shows one corner of a mosaic embedded in the tiles just outside the patio door.

There’s something wrong with it, though. Maybe there’s damp bubbling up from underneath, or someone’s dropped tapioca on it, or it’s got some kind of pox.

Or, in fact, it’s been hailing and the hailstones that landed on it are beginning to melt.

We watched the hailstorm approach across the valley as a grey sheet. When it reached us there was a brief flash of sunshine so I went looking for a rainbow. A hailbow? But there wasn’t one.

    It happened here in NY the other day, Rained buckets then this great rainbow happened. It has been kind of warm.
