Yesterday Evening; Hailstones.


Five minutes before this we had been dining outdoors; eating Lamb chops and Taboulé, and listening to the sweet sound of distant thunder.

No sooner had we gone indoors than the familiar rattling sound of hail was suddenly everywhere. I managed to film a tiny bit before being hit on my bare foot by a big-bugger (expletive inaudible).



And this was the resulting sky just five minutes afterwards (below).


Serious stuff, but not enough rain to bring up mushrooms.

  1. Oh, it was audible, alright, and justified. Here on the other side of the world we had a hailstorm recently, too, though not as dramatic as yours.

    What an amazing sky, that is. Worth the pain, I reckon.

  3. Beautiful sky!

    We had a hailstorm once that was so bad we had several broken windows. And worse, it destroyed my garden for that year. I don't like hailstorms at all!
