Here's what we had falling from the sky this evening! 1 3/4 inch hail, that's the biggest I've personally collected. Luckily, there wasn't much of it, around here anyway. But, they did let the sirens wail for awhile.
I was inside having a scoutmaster conference at the time. If he is successful at his First Class cooking requirement this weekend, he'll have a board of review on Monday. He's been sitting at Second Class for awhile and has really matured since our last conference months ago. He's ready to take on more leadership in the troop.
Also had the neighbor boy over for his Second Class conference this afternoon. It's rewarding to hear him tell about things he's learned over the past year in scouts and that he can hardly wait to do some high adventures.
Lots of guys want to do cooking requirements for advancement on the upcoming campout. Problem is that many patrols only have a guy or two going so they're scrambling to gather together a 'patrol' to lead. I expect some will have to wait until next month.
