Crackle

Just got back from work, an hours' drive normally but today, oh my. A thunderstorm over Wisbech turned the skies to black and the roads to streams. The heavy rain was ok but the it was not much fun driving along in the heavy rain but when it started hailing so hard I couldn't hear the thunderclaps and the viability reduced to a few metres the jollyometer dropped down towards zero and the oh-shit-I-don't-like-this-meter started rising into the red zone.

It was especially nice to get home and once we've been to fat fighters I think a restorative G&T might be in order.

  1. Hail is bad news. It means the updraft of the storm is so strong it can keep ice crystals suspended in the air long enough for it to become large chunks. That is the kind of storm that can spawn tornadoes.
