Milton was the name they had given him at the Humane Society, and when we adopted him we certainly couldn't think of a better name, so we kept it. I don't know what the name was based on. Poets? English villages? Canadian towns? His sibling had already been adopted, so we didn't know what the naming theme was. (They generally give all the kittens in a litter names that are linked in some way - like Agate, Pumice, Carbon and Graphite.)
I was away from home recently when there was a severe rain storm (nearly two inches in a fairly short period, apparently), but did experience heavy hail. That was at Independence Pass, so it's not too unusual, even in summer.
