i am very happy to see mony writing such pithy comments. welcome, and post away.

Very strange day here (and it's only 8:50, so plenty of time for more weirdness). I checked the wx (old newsroom shorthand for weather) before leaving the house, and it said today would be sunny, with highs about 53. Sky was that steely grey-blue color, but i thought nothing of it.

I get to the subway without incident, but while I was waiting on the platform a sudden downpour started. And then little hailstones.

By the time I got downtown, no rain, but the streets were wet.

Luckily, my lazy ass didn't get any plants in over the weekend.

It's been very windy the past few days, so those beautiful cherry blossoms I photographed last week are just a memory. But more will come, the second batch of trees will be peaking later this week. Or so it appears.

Thanks for the nod (but I had to look up 'pithy')!
Those photos of the cherry blossoms were beautiful, but so transient. Sounds like haiku...

Merriam-Webster really shed some light--consisting of or abounding in pith.

Darling. I have to say that you need to check the NWS site and then click down to the forecast discussion to really get the scoop on what is happening in your metroplex.
