A beatiful storm29 November , 2013
You can see how it progressed from these photos I took on my way to fetch Nicola from school.
At two points I had to pull my blue canoo over to the side of the river due to the golf bal sizes hailstones coming down. I thought it might take out the wind screen so I hid under biggish trees, hazards on, towel over my face for a few minutes until I remembered trees aren’t exactly safe to be under with the lightning either (picked a smaller tree second time round).
When I finally made it to the school I was stuck in the car for another half hour waiting for the ice to stop raining down, so I could make a dash for the door.
I didn’t get photos of the hail stones (because I wasn’t getting out of the car just to be brained by something like that – it was a towel, not a cape!).
Miraculously we’re all in tact and so is the car.
Did you get hit? Is everyone okay?
