I was visiting with my neighbor yesterday evening and she commented that these were hail clouds. It rained later, but no hail here.

We were away Saturday through Monday and had to board the dogs. I picked them up from the kennel on Tuesday morning. This is Kobe in the back yard yesterday afternoon.

The wolf spider is found here in Oklahoma. It isn't a web-spinning spider, but roams at night to hunt for food. The wolf spider ranges in size from 1/2 inches to 2 inches in length. It is hairy and typically brown to gray in color with various markings or lines. The wolf spider is often confused with the brown recluse, but as you can see the wolf spider doesn't have the violin-shaped marking behind the head. The wolf spider is not poisonous, though bites may cause reactions in certain individuals.

When my Jazzy Beagle was eight months old, she picked up a small wolf spider and was bitten in the mouth by it. Within a matter of minutes, she was in respiratory distress, and then collapsed on the floor, with no sign of life. My husband did puppy CPR while I called the veterinarian, and asked him to meet us at the clinic (it was after hours). She was given intravenous fluids and the doctor stayed with her through the night. He called the next morning and said we could come pick her up.
