Our massive winter snowstorm

[Hail in California]

I keep seeing references to the massive winter storm that's on the way, but I thought they were talking about New York. And then it started to hail ... and kept it up, long enough that we actually got little lentil-sized hailstones piling up in the yard, looking almost like it snowed.

So of course we rushed outside to take pictures. For you folks outside California, hailstorms are something we see maybe every three or four years, and hail that doesn't melt immediately after hitting the ground is quite a bit rarer. So please excuse us our excitement over a little bit of frozen water ...

Here are a few photos: Hail in Burbank.
