Ice on the June

MARGARET ROME seems to have a sense of the poetry of real estate. You will see why when you read her post (below)....It  makes me wonder even more about the amazing choices Nature creates in our lives...including the choice to capture such moments and share them. Thanks MARGARET.

It was late on Tuesday after a wonderfully long day, one of those very hot and humid Baltimore days. I had an appointment to show my listing at 3408 Terrapin Rd, parked my car in the driveway and went to open the house. You know - open the shades, turn on all the lights - all that typical stuff we agents do to ready a home for visitors. Suddenly I heard the wind kick up and watched as the sky turned that threatening dark that means a serious storm is brewing. I ran back out to the driveway to move my car under the carport - you remember that special car? – I did not want any dents!

Hail Storm Hail Storm 2

Hail on Pool CoverRan back in the house just in time before the noise and excitement began. Have you ever  heard hail in a storm on a skylight? 

Looking out the big windows of this contemporary home I watched as heavy hail pelted the ground. Grabbed my camera just in time to see this quick quirk of nature cover the in-ground pool cover with ice balls. These photos are of the actual rain/hail/wind storm – they are blurry not because I was shaking, but because it was coming down so fast and hard!

A few minutes later all was calm and quiet. The ice melted in the afternoon heat, and a beautiful cool breeze came up for the drive home. A nice reward after a long and (briefly) exciting day.
