The Sky Is Falling!

The weather just got significantly warmer in Rome, but around 5pm every day there seems to be rain. Today, as my roommate was taking in the laundry that was hanging out on the balcony to dry, it started hailing. We watched it for a full 5 minutes, and then I got my camera to take a movie. The first hailstorm lasted about 10 minutes, then a 10-minute break as it poured rain and flooded the drain in the balcony, then another hail storm for 10 minutes. So here you go, short videos of Roman weather! Listen carefully to hear the large marble-sized hail tinkle off the metal railing of the balcony.

Ew, that second video reminds me of that saying "The heads in the Navy are mighty fine; you flush them down at 6 and they come back up at 9"
It reminds me of the Beverly Hillbillies... and up through the ground came a bubblin' crude... oil, that is.

It kinda reminds me of the drain in my dorm suite freshman year. We all had such long hair that it would continually clog the drain and we'd always have to get the maintenance guys who didn't wear pants that fit to come fix it. Gross.
