Hailstone holes in the veranda roof

I was sitting out in the garden today. Lovely weather. A good WiFi connection. Minding my own business and checking a few emails.

The sky darkened (unusual for the Gold Coast in October) and about 10 minutes later golf ball sized hailstones punched throught the veranda roof landing where I had been sitting.

For some reason the power supply at home was a bit average for a while, and there was not a cellphone connection to be had !

Nature still beats Technology without really trying ;)

Of course, what's so amazing in this modern connected world is that my first thought was to grab some digital shots, upload them to my Flickr library and IM my friends to tell them about it !
