Tin Roof Rusted - Or Snow in San Jose

I was awoken at 1 AM by a loud, continuous, rat-tat-a-tat-tat. I knew it had something to do with the tin roof that covers the backyard patio. And for sure it was raining tapioca-sized hail.

With all the animals shivering around, we fell back asleep. When we awoke later that morning, there was snow on the grass and on the roof of the house. In San Jose, California. In mid-April.

It might not be a lot but my neighbor had a snowball he was saving! And it's something I've never experienced.

I hope my potato bush is okay.
