Cool pics of the week

I suppose the one a few days ago also counts.

Golf ball-sized hail


It hailed like crazy a few minutes ago. I always enjoy watching this, as it happens so rarely here. Anyhow, that’s not really a huge piece of hail on the doormat, it’s the golf ball that found it’s way into my yard last week. I can’t imagine those falling from the sky!

Decisions, decisions

Waiting for the skies to clear


Right now these two beauties (along with several others) are gathering dust while rain falls from the sky. I need one day of blue skies so I can take as many cameras as possible to my usual photo spots in the city. Rumor has it that Monday will be dry. Maybe that will be my chance.
As an aside, I believe that the two Canon Digital ELPHs shown above are the best looking digital cameras ever created.
Update: Today turned out to be a nice day. Unfortunately two of the cameras I was expecting didn’t show up due to a “fax error” on the other end. Grrr…

Rain delay

i was supposed to go to Southern California this weekend. One day was a trip to San Diego to visit my old haunts. Sunday was Disneyland, and Monday was to be spent hanging out with Jackson.
Unfortunately the weather was not going to cooperate. With heavy rain and flood warnings in the forecast, I decided to postpone my trip a few weeks, hoping that the weather gets better. Unfortunately, I booked my hotel with Priceline… which is non-refundable. I guess it’s the price you have to pay for getting a cheap price on a hotel room.
So hopefully I’ll try this trip again soon.
Update: Looks like I made the right decision [link]
