Hail to the Freaks of Nature

We had quite a thunderstorm at lunch time today and it was quite a sight to see.  The large rain drops turned into hail and we had a bit of fun playing.

A bowl of hail

Coming down in our front yard

Beginnings of the little balls of ice

As the hail hit the water in our swimming pool, it churned the water and steam started to rise from the pool.  It was facinating to watch.

Riaan got out the rake and collected some hail together
so the girls could make some hail-balls to throw in the air.

Throwing the hail in the air and watching in splatter.
Great Fun!
(Megan has an eye patch on because she has a very bad eye infection)

Daddy had some fun too.

I've not seen hail for sometime. And I don't think that I've ever seen that much!
What a sight!

Great photographs. Thanks for sharing them!

How cool is this! My kids would LOVE it. When it rains hard they ask for it to please hail :)
