photoblog image Styrofoam?

Styrofoam?

These ice pellets or whatever form of precipitation it was, appeared on the deck in the morning on 31 December. I thought it would be soft to walk on but it was very crunchy. The sun melted it by afternoon.

 

Here's a closer look.

If this isn't the coolest video you've seen all day, I'll eat my shirt.

They certainly look like styrofoam pellets, Mary.
I think you had a hailstorm while you slept! Great close up shots of the pellets!
No need to eat your shirt - it is in fact the coolest video! Wow!

I think you have to eat your shirt... wink.
Fabulous pictures. I caught up with them. Love the 'cows'. The water drops and these ones. And I also missed your birthday I think... Happy belated birthday and I hope you had a great day.

You were lucky they were small, I once saw some after a storm in Barcelona that were large enough to dent the roof of a car.
Mary MacADNski: I could tell you stories about hail here.
Ces grêlons sont drôlement gros.

Great macros - and wonderful video, what cold hands they must have at the end of it all.
Mary MacADNski: Drumming keeps your hands very warm. I have to take off any rings when drumming as fingers get hot and swollen.
Whatever, it looks lovely stuff Mary.
It does look very much like hail stones, when they fall they usually come a very fast rate.
Looks like hail to me Mary


Hail Mary.....grin

Haha! I missed this yesterday (I was in the car driving home what felt like all day). This is hail; we had some overnight a few days ago. Very crunchy under foot and extremely painful when wind-driven into your face!
