Two or three bo…

Two or three bouts of hail stones today.

I liked the way they kept revisiting. Spaced out like an alarm clock that repeats itself. Except they are such a musical force the way they clatter.

Another thing that I respect about hailstones is their duration. It’s kinda unique in weather terms. They really seem in control of themselves. They fall only as long as they are interested and then cease, cut you the viewer, the consumer off and you can never quite tell when that might be. They are not on the dimmer switch hailstones. They are on and bang they are off.

Tonight it is very cold.

Elsewhere cabbage seeds are germinating and 250 million euros later we discover that the Mahon Tribunal has deemed Bertie was talking through his hose for the past 15 years. I was thinking of a more financial effective way to determine this: I think customs officers have ways to tell if people are lying, something to do with looking left or in a particular direction. I was thinking if there was a fault line under Ireland the bridges would have been toppling today from the shudder until i remembered all the other tribunals and how little change has come out of them.
