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.
