Ice Fell From The Sky !

Last evening me and Banjo were rassling in the house when we heard this loud noise outside. Mom looked out the window then grabbed the camera and went out on the back patio. Me and Banjo didn't want to go with her cause it was really noisy out there. Mom made this video for the hoomans and doggies who may have never seen ice balls falling from the sky. She called it a "hailstorm".

Mom brought some of the ice inside for me and Banjo to see. We don't get ice cubes like some doggies, so this was a first for us.

I didn't know the ice would be so cold, like snow. But when I licked it, it felt good on my tongue.

I took the ice from mom's hand and ate it. It was good!

Banjo wasn't so sure he wanted to taste the ice.

Only when mom put it in her hand did he give it a try.

Look how perfectly round this ice ball is.

Does ice fall from the sky where you live?

Cool video clip, Bijou!
We've never had that here but we do get lots of snow in the winter.
Hope your human's car didn't get dented!
Have a great week
Your pal,

Wow, ice from the sky! You are so lucky! I love ice but sometimes it give me a brain freeze and then my mom laughs at the face I'm making. Freezy Pops from the sky, WOW!

Gotta love hail - everyone rushes to the windows & stares in amazement here too, happens a few times a year here in Ohio. We got so much last year that it piled up a few inches, looked like snow in summer!

I don't like ice from the sky. It hurts your paws to walk on it. I'll take the fluffy white stuff any day.

Bell would love to have some of that ice too - she'd have so much fun! We had a hail storm last week for about 1 minute.. then it stopped and sun came back out - TALK ABOUT WEIRD!

Ice feel from the sky when we lived by the beach earlier this year... it wasn't that big though!

Did I see a pond in your video?! How cool!!!

Miley said...

Brownie said...

Wow! That's a big ice ball! It has hailed here and left dents in Daddy's car... but Momster never went the extra mile to get us some of those icies as treats! Lucky you!

Thanks for all the toys and goodies, I'm having SO much fun with them!

Nibbles Treats said...

We've had a few hailstorms here lately too. Weird stuff!

We didn't get hail last night, the bad storms stayed to the south of us, (which is where you are, BOL!) We did get thunder though, and that scares me - I shake and want to cuddle wiff mom!

Totally Timmy said...

We get hail here! The horses hate it because it stings so they have to run for cover. It ruins flowers and crops too!

Not often but it has sometimes!

We had some last August that made some folks have to shovel their dekhks and patios!

I'm glad were got to enjoy some of the round khubes!

It's VERY loud isn't it? We had sky lights in our last house and it was deafening when it hailed! Great video

Bijou said...

Hi Furiends,

Mom was standing under the patio's tin roof so the noise was VERY loud. The video only gives you an idea how noisy. Mom once got caught inside the metal garage during a hailstorm. She came out ten minutes later and her ears were ringing. BOL

And no damage was done to our truck. It was safely parked in the garage but mom heard at work today that they had baseball to grapefruit sized hail to the west of us. Lots of damage done there!

Hi, Bijou!
We had one of those hailstorms like a year ago! It was pawesome!
Glad you two had the chance to taste it!
Kisses and hugs
