A light dusting of winter hail.

The last week has been rather interesting weather wise.  We’ve had everything from blue sky’s, heavy rain, gale force winds to electrical storms.  One News even reported on a tree that was struck by lightning.

There is no point of reference for size but these fragments of hail were about the size of baby peas.

We don’t get snow up here in Auckland (often) so when ice falls from the sky it’s fun to play with.  I don’t think this will be the last time we see hail this winter so there is most likely much more for me to play with over the coming months.

Ice in the hand.

I remember about seven years ago I posted a video on YouTube about the hail storm that briefly passed over at the time.  It was much worse than this one.
