Winter comes to Canberra

Well, not winter actually, a severe thunderstorm that dropped an inch or so of hail on the city centre last night:

UPDATE: more photos are circulating of the storm. The image below of the storm was taken in Yass, a small country town about 50 miles from Canberra:

Wow! Everything's bigger in Oz.

About 6 years ago we had a huge hailstorm. I never believed that hail got that big. Seriously, it hailed grapefruit-sized ice balls for 15 minutes.

Insurance bought new roofs for everybody in town.

Which was really good for us because our 4500 sqare foot cedar shake roof was close to needing repair anyway.
