    Corr blimey... it all gets a bit dicey once you're north of the M25 doesn't it :eek: :p :p it's been ultra muggy and thundery all day, then about an hour ago what sounded like the local imbeciles throwing stones at the house, was infact the heavens opening up and dropping scotch on the rocks, sans the scotch :eek:

    Excuse the poor quality picture, but it gives you an idea of how big they were, (it's a quid coin by the way) I've never seen anything like this here in blighty before. :eek:

    How exciting though... I wonder what the 3 people whose cars have cracked windscreens and dents are going to say when they get home from work. :p

    Indeed, we were warned of 'possible structural damage' from the hail. :eek:

    In the end, we had a bit of light hail followed by a couple of hours of rain and thunder. Nowt we can't handle, although a market town just up from us apparently got a bit flooded. Couldn't say for certain as we had the sound off (we were listening to the footie on the radio), but that's how it looked. :D

    :eek: They're enormous!

    That's what you get for venturing outside M25. It was a glorious afternoon here...

    Wasn't that area that got hit with that late February blizzard?

    A rough time either way.

    And today, when it was apparently the hottest day of the year?

    Well let that be a lesson to you... you won't be venturing back oop North for a while now, will you? :p
