What a way to start the day...

Woke up to a torrential, and unforcasted, downpour with pea-sized hail. I had to run out with no rain coat (don't have one), and put my plants in the shed. 

The cold rain triggered my Raynaud's disease, and I still can't feel my toes.

I need a blanket and a big mug of hot cocoa.

Definition By Mayo Clinic staff Raynaud's (ray-NOHZ) disease is a condition that causes some areas of your body — such as your fingers, toes, the tip of your nose and your ears — to feel numb and cool in response to cold temperatures or stress. In Raynaud's disease, smaller arteries that supply blood to your skin narrow, limiting blood circulation to affected areas. Women are more likely to have Raynaud's disease. It's also more common in people who live in colder climates. Treatment of Raynaud's disease depends on its severity and whether you have any other health conditions. For most people, Raynaud's disease is more a nuisance than a disability.

It's always slightly painful when feeling comes back.

Crummy. I woke up to a big rainstorm as well. No hail as far as I know, but it still cancels out my plans to take my son to the cemetery and look at the flags :( I'm hoping it will clear up soon
