There is apparently a severe weather alert. The mall PA system has decided it needs to remind us of this every 60 seconds. We are supposed to stay away from skylights.

No, but seriously -- tornado warning! The national weather service has downgraded the hypothesized size of hail from "baseball" to "hen egg", but I'm still kinda unhappy that my car is parked out in the open. Courtney and I were talking about other egg sizes that could be used to denote hail proportions, given that they were so specific about the HEN size. We concurred that "dinosaur egg" would be theoretically the worst, but also the least helpful descriptor, given that most people have never actually seen a dinosaur egg and thus would be unable to extrapolate that proportion onto their hail expectations.

Holy shit, we can now hear the hail through the roof of the mall. Oh, my poor car.
