Hailstones, Trinity Alps, California, July 26

Hailstones, Trinity Alps, California, July 26
Well, the news from the mountains of Northern California isn't earth-shaking this year. Or is it?

We experienced the great thunderstorm which caused all the forest fires in Oregon. For us it was lots of light flashes and noise and millions of marble-sized hailstones that hurt when they hit you. Followed by many days with the lovely landscape totally obscured by smoke.

Is this our future?

Hail in July seems pretty extreme to me, even in the mountains. Predictions are that as the global temperatures rise, our weather will become more severe.
