Ice Follies

Well, that was weird...

I've just got back from being called out to a hail storm, about 6 kms away.

There was a hail up to your ankles in a small 200 metre section of the highway.

Enough to cause havoc anyway as cars slid off the road and gracefully rotated this way and that.

The lone local cop was looking slightly flustered.

A 4x4 took out the roadside fence, but once a few flashing lights arrived calm was restored and the ice soon melted.

I can't believe how localized it was.

Very weird...
