Yikes!!  What a dramatic end to February and start of March we had here on the Island. Over a week ago I was standing outside my studio talking with a friend and I said, “Some white little ball just hit me on the head!” Then more came down – a lot more. We looked at each other in wonder. “Hail”, my friend said, in wonder.  “It’s hail – like white, hard snowballs.” Glad it was explained to me because I can’t remember the last time I saw hail on this island. I was so thankful I had a warm studio to enjoy – with all my kilns running and keeping the studio toasty warm!
