The skylight in my wool room.
I must apologise for the poor photo quality, all these photos were taken with my phone today, it was raining and hailing way too much to take my Canon out into this weather!
Today started out like any other lovely day, sunny, warm with just a few clouds in the sky. I have an amazing weather app on my phone called Weather SA, that sends me a weather update each morning and today it mentioned a storm but I was expecting it to rain a little. The kids swam and then we went inside to begin our schoolwork. It started to darken outside and we noticed a few snow flakes, yes, I said snowflakes (it’s late Spring here by the way) falling to the ground! A few minutes later, hail started pelting our house. Not small pieces of hail, hail the size of golf balls! I have never experienced anything like this in my life!! It was scary!
I scrambled for the car keys, trying to get the car into the safety of the garage, I actually have bruises on my arms from running around in the hail to park the car, each hailstone stung like a bee sting when it hit my skin. The sound echoing inside our home from the hail was deafening and it was difficult to hear each other speak. All the pets and chickens were safe and out of the storm.
My mom’s bedroom had water streaming down the walls and our veggie garden mesh roof collapsed but it’s still protecting our veggies, it’s actually full of hail that hasn’t melted yet. I need to go out there and sort it out. Our garden is in shreds, leaves and branches everywhere… (At least our veggies are safe!!)
How’s your day going? I must go and find something to knit, that was way too much excitement for one day:)
