    woohooo....hail.... and rain, plenty of rain..love a good storm

    The large red area in the top left just passed over us.
    Only smallish hail, no damage, plenty of rain,
    Had a Butcher Bird take refuge under our patio but could not get a photo, poor bugga was saturated.
    Temperature dropped by about 8 degrees in just a few minutes

    No Kirsty, no photos, the hail melted off fairly quickly, and there really wasn't much to see

    Nothing like a decent storm to brighten one's day... damn it being nice and sunny here.

    We got the bottom half of that system. No hail but lots of big fat rain. Probably not enough to turn the lawns green - now just need a good solid week of it!

    Yeah, has been dry there, just about everyone getting something. It sure does sound strange in being such a long time raining on roof tops, , Lovely sound .
    Great news !
