We're a month into Summer here in Australia, so Christmas Day is all salads, cold drinks, eating outdoors and this year, one mother of a hail storm. We were on our way from lunch with my family to dinner with Andrew's family when there was an almighty thump on the windscreen. We pulled over and Andrew threw the quilt we happened to put in the car that morning, across the windscreen to protect it. The hail stone were the size of golf balls and were hitting the ground so hard that they bounced several feet into the air...and against the side of the car.
It was only when the rain started that the size of the hail reduced and the scary thumps on the car became more like a bunch of kids hurling rocks at us. That's when I started taking some video.
Once we got home, we looked over the car, which is now very dimpled!
