Phone call from Younger Daughter at her work today telling me to dash off and fetch J from school before the gale and deluge hit me. I looked out bemusedly at the fine sunny day but took her word for the fact that all hell was already breaking out where she was. Raining by the time I collected her and by the time we reached home visibility was near zero. Then the hail started. Ironic as I had been exchanging comments with Ark that it is something we hardly ever get.
After we had been battered for a while it occurred to me that I had a remote for YD’s garage so we drove in and took shelter there.
We have got off lightly. Bits of neighbour roof in our garden and a part of our carport UV b roof next door other side. A demolished letter box. Sundry leaks and seepages. Whereas some have lost homes or lives.
Internet and emails down; this is sent courtesy of my phone which does not lend itself well to visits and comments. Thus a scarcity in Colonialists may be experienced.
