We are getting treated to a pretty severe storm in Canberra at the moment. Up on the hill in Calwell we have a great view of the down pour. You see the centre of the storm, that is pretty much where we live.
A few minutes into the storm it started raining hailstones, and when I say raining I mean raining, like – instead of raindrops but with the same intensity. We managed to capture a few photos.
Bella asked me to go out and pick up some hail for her. I went and grabbed a handful (as you would snow) and put in a bowl for her to inspect. She thought it was very tasty!?!?!
I guess this pretty much cancels the fireworks that they had planned in Canberra tonight for new years eve (the wind is too strong for it to be safe, even though if the firework hit the ground I doubt the ground would be dry enough for it to strike up a blaze).
