Hi guys, (it's been a while!)

We had a nice hail storm pass through the Ridge early this morning (19th July) at 5:27am EST.

Stones were smallish to start around 3-5mm but they got to 12mm (marble size) near the rear of the core. The storm lasted only 5mins but it was more than enough to blanket my driveway with hail stones and get me out of bed and race outside into it- in ridiculously low temps lol! There was one single thunder rumble but I didn't visibly catch any lightning.

Nice to see! We don't get hail all that often out here (even in summer) for some reason, but really good to see it!  ;D

Just waiting patiently on the warmer months to arrive now!   

Chasing Region: Lightning Ridge. N.S.W.
