Yes, I'm somehow still surprised.
I saw this beautiful red flower tree yesterday on my way to work. Even though the temperatures were categorized as FREEZE YOUR BALLS OFF Cold, these flowers have somehow bloomed and now grace the pathway to the train which is something lovely and cheery to see first thing in the morning.
Then, last night I saw this -- hail pounding down from the sky. Loudly. In a very violent way. Killing any children and small animals that got in it's path. I, of course, stayed inside and took this photo from our window.
