The Tempest

I fear the worst for our plants on the balcony. The hailstones were big and there were plenty of them...



By the way: violet is really bad and we're right underneath it.

I was on the phone with my mother and I could hardly hear her. I had to use the landlines. The mobile signal went just flat.

Our daisy is certainly destroyed :(

Oh No!

Dear Dad's young winter spinach plants were battered by hail 2 weeks ago (storm was so bad parts of the roof of a shopping complex fell in). 7 day storm here became tedious.

But you're almost in Summer, so hail is way worse. I will send healing, healthy and wellness thoughts to the chilli plants.

Today I saw some blue sky.... for a few seconds....... then it rained again.........

@Toño: daisy is not that badly hit, though 75% of the geranium and 50% of the chili are down.

Sounds not exactly like Shakespeare though. :-) Propz Pilgrim

Not the Chilli!

It was a doozy all right. Ewan had to walk home in it and was soaked right through when he got home!

Yikes. We had a pretty monster hail storm a few months ago in Central Texas. I'm now pricing out a new roof for my house. Thankfully the storm and its golfball-sized hail arrived didn't damage any of my windows. I was really hoping it would knock over the back fence, though.

Good luck. :-)
