This is a picture of my backyard. Taken yesterday. JULY 21.
That white stuff covering the ground? Yeah, that’s hail. In July. COVERING the ground. And I live in the northern hemisphere, where it is, theoretically, summer.
And to further prove my point, this is my backyard, 4 hours after that picture was taken:
8pm. On the brink of being pitch black. And the hail still hasn’t melted. Which means that, in JULY, it was cold enough for hail to remain on the ground for 4 solid hours.
So in case you’ve been feeling like it’s not exactly summer, well, know that you aren’t alone.
