I've been home sick with a cold all weekend. Yesterday morning it was bright and sunny and I was grumbling about how it always seems to be nice weather outside when I'm feeling under the weather inside. A friend who was out for a walk stopped by for a cup of tea. Just minutes after she left, I heard some raindrops on the roof. It quickly got stronger, and suddenly exploded into a full-blown downpour mixed with pea-sized hail. Amy jumped in the car to go find our friend (who we knew didn't have a hat or umbrella with her) and gave her a ride the rest of the way home.

Later on I looked back at my temperature logger for the day:

That's a sudden drop from about 14°C (57°F) to 8°C (46°F) in a matter of minutes. The surprising thing was how quickly the temperature recovered after the storm cloud passed over. If you remove the section from 12pm to 2pm, it's as though the storm never happened!
