Hailstorm


video
Sunday morning, 12:30 am. It was so loud I thought something was going to break. Like a window. Or the roof. Two sceaming boys ended up in our bed for a while.
Checking out the "ice rain."The backyard grass was flattened and covered with leaves shredded to bits as if they went through a food processor. Our hopeful apple crop is gouged and pitted by the hail. It also stripped off all remaining raspberries along with most of the leaves. There was a part of a burnt birch branch in our neighbour's yard. There aren't any birch trees around...
Amazing.Apples which are now wasp food.Raspberry bushesThe neighbour's bedraggled cat looked like it had gotten caught in the storm.
