I learned a couple of things last Saturday. 1. When running around in a storm, it might be a good idea to check the front of the lens for water droplets before shooting. 2. Hail is cold when striking the body.

Thanks Patti. It had been a long time since I had purposely gone out in bad weather – quite exciting.

Two good things to remember. We used to get a lot of hail storms when I lived in the Midwest so I learned that the hard way also. I carry in my bag an absorbent cotton cloth and a microfiber cloth because I learned lesson 1 the hard way also. But you got the shot!!! To hell with hail!

Thanks Ken. Yes, I knew I had a microfiber cloth in my bag, but I had to run back across the road & dig around for it. Next time I will do better. 🙂
