Default Weather: Stop the presses!

A typical Surf City USA day starts at 60 degrees and warms to 70. Yesterday, something happened that I haven't seen here in 45 years. A hail storm occurred at the beach!

The sand was covered with nearly 2 inches of hail.

RV folks who came for some sun and fun were in for a shock.

When I saw this on the news, I thought of you. I was hoping you would get some images for this challenge. You never disappoint, Walter. Thank you.

We drove down to look at the snow after hearing about it at breakfast. Made it just in time to see all the snow and remember that I left all three cameras at home.

Nice pictures.
And we have been sunny and in the 60's on the Oregon beaches in February.
The world has turned topsy turvy.

I too hoped you would get some photos. I heard about it on my way home, it looks like you had almost as much hail as we had snow! That's really something!
