Hail, Hail --- to MICHIGAN STATE
Odd post. Big hail storm in Austin, Texas today. I've never seen hail like this. BTW, sometimes not going to the YMCA is a good thing. Just plain tired after work today. Decided to go straight home even though I had all my stuff in the car. Good thing I only made quick stop before landing on the couch. Stopped by Walgreens to buy ear plugs. The lady sitting behind me at work? Clueless. Has no idea she chaws her gum. I have no idea how to broach that subject with her as I'm sure she is not aware and I don't want to hurt her feelings, but in the silent atmosphere of high school essay scoring, this chomper radiates her skills throughout the room. (Please excuse the run-on sentence, but I've been reading 11th grade essays for almost three weeks now and I have no writing skills left. Pamela, please tell me I will survive this.)
Anyway, noticed the sky was rather dark as I approached home. Storm came. Gathered in the garage with my oldest and youngest son to collect the specimens of hail as they grew larger. Quite impressive. (Also, now have no memory as to what comprises a sentence.)
As to the Michigan State portion of this piece - well, you Michigan Wolverines know how your school song has the ending, Hail, Hail to Michigan, the losers of the West? Well, hmmm, I'm thinking it's Michigan State that is still in the NCAA tournament. March Madness. Go Green! Spartans Rock!
Hail, hail to Michigan ... State
Enjoy the pictures.
