It has been a funny afternoon. It became really dark around three o'clock. After about an hour of me remarking to anyone who would listen that it was quite dark outside and that it was a funny kind of afternoon the weather did something that I've never seen in Alice Springs before. It hailed. First of course, it poured.
The rain coming down off the roof of the office.
And so did the hail. Lots of hail.
The hail in the vegetable garden outside the office.
When I left work I found my car sitting in a puddle. At the moment it seems the hail didn't do to much damage to the my car.
When I left the office though you could certainly see that the hail had fallen.
And the highway was flooded as the drains were overwhelmed.
And on the main street off my street.
My street certainly didn't escape. The drain was overwhelmed and the water pooled all over the cul-de-sac. I've never seen that much water.
There was certainly a lot of of hail next to the truck (it was left at home today).
My vegetable garden didn't fair too well. All the plats were totally cut to shreds by the hail.
It looked as if it had snowed in the backyard.
