  • I came back from college with Alejandra, we noticed all of our house trees leafless. What the hail happened?! We asked.

    My mother laughing with a sort of suprise said: It was yesterday's hail! Look at the sunshade (on the backyard) it's all filled with holes!

    It was the first snowfall of our lives. Painful; beautiful.

    Picture: Standing over the yard full of leafs.
