Our storm season is definitely here. Last Saturday was the seventh day in a row of severe storm and weather warnings. These warnings were much closer to home and this time our suburbs name was mentioned every warning. I knew we were going to get more than rain this time.
It started off with small hail and then it got louder and louder. This is the first time in 26 years of living here, that I have seen hailstones this big.
We didn't get it quite as bad as other places - some received hail as large as tennis balls. This is what we call Australian snow!
It's weird how the hail can be so different in its shape. Some are perfectly round. I've since found out from the Higgins Storm Chasers site that the hailstone in the very first photo, with its bumpy, strange shape, is called gorilla hail. There you go - I didn't know that!
I wonder if that's the last of the storms? We certainly have had a lot of rain and the tank is full - which I am very thankful for.
Hope everyone is staying safe in this crazy weather we are having.
