Melbourne, Australia, is well known for its changeable weather but Christmas Day 2011 was a day to remember for the residents of Taylors Lakes. During the afternoon a severe hail storm, with hailstones almost the size of tennis balls, wreaked havoc in our suburb. I took this photo of some of the hailstones and added a twenty cent coin for reference. I’ve just realized that this may not mean much to our International blog visitors. For Americans our twenty cents is slightly larger than your quarter. I don’t know how our school fared in the storm. Hopefully there will not be any damage to our buildings. Thankfully, no one was seriously injured.
