We had a storm last night, not especially spectacular in any way. I was mostly oblivious to its approach and nicely surprised when I uploaded photos later in the evening, for someone had snapped this shot:

What didn't escape me was the phone call about an hour later from The National Weather Service, asking what size the hail had been, producing in me a strange blend of Wow, are we ever important, and This is how they garner and disperse weather facts -- they phone piggledy people in the middle of nowhere and ask what happened? That, my friends, is funny.

If only we could think faster: "Pea size? Oh, no, no, no. Bowling ball. You should see the carnage!"

I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. ~1 Timothy 2:1-4
