Bright sunshine to a violent hailstorm and back again in 10 minutes

It just doesn’t feel like British weather but I expect we say that every year. And it is April. April showers and all that. However, we went from bright sunshine...

... to a violent hail storm with ear-splitting thunder - the garden was white over for a while, the hail stayed on the roof, until the storm turned to torrential rain and then passed on all within a few minutes.

It made the Jawbone Gang walk very muddy. The boots accumulate mud so you get taller and taller the further you go.

No sinister finds this time.

  1. Nice pics, Penny. The weather is really contrary at present. We were on a viewpoint, overlooking Porlock (Somerset)last week and Valerie was getting icecream from the van up there. Suddenly, as I was taking pictures, a storm blew up and showered us with hail and, five minutes later, we had a full rainbow between land and sea. Amazing.
