I was out in the yard doing some tidying up around the garden edges and trying to make it all look a little more respectable out there instead of the grass over growing every where. If it was up to me we would have no lawn. However we have a dog so she really needs her space to run around. Being a Kelpie all the more space the better.
Whilst out there black clouds came over a bit of light rain and a whole lotta noise. I ignored it all as I really wanted to make some progress and frankly could not care less about getting wet. After completing one side of the yard edging I ventured over to one of the vegie patches to inspect how some of the fruit and vegetables were comming along. A lot more noise and heavier ran apeared whilst in there and it became even more dark. So I thought it would be best if I did head indoors.
The family stood and watched this hail come on down for a good five minutes which then turned to average sized hail for another five minutes or so. It was then that I grabbed the umbrella a raced out to check the chooks and chicks.
That in her let hand is the hail and a standard ice cube in her rightChecked on the gardens today and only damage was a number leaves of the apple trees and some leaf damage to the eggplants.
