Hail in October10/21/09 - Nature is dramatic in New Mexico, especially the weather.

A cold front rolled in yesterday and delivered the usual thunder and lightning, a sudden drop in temperature, and hail the size of garbanzo beans, followed by a half-inch of rain that came down in about 20 minutes and set the arroyos gurgling.

The pounding on the roof scared Obie to the point that he squeezed himself under the sofa and let out a couple of the most mournful yowls I've ever heard from a cat.

Life is hard for Obie.
