We Had It Good, We Had It Nice

Hail storm yesterday. It didn't last long. Coming fast from the West, the storm cloud reached Alaior around 2:46 PM. The hail dropped for about six minutes, then the sky cleared up rapidly. Twenty-four hours later, everything is back to "normal," heat included.

An interesting spread of pictures there Nicolas'... (I was going to say 'sequence' ) but Andy beat me to it !..the clouds in top left look most menacing.. as if they are going to attack the village rooftops...// Yes definitely 'Nefarious'... as you put it.
Keep well and good wishes - from Dj. UK.

Thanks, David. The hail did some attacking :) Plenty of cars that got their windshield smashed. Something similar happened over Corsica later that day, but much more destructive.

Hermoso collage con diversas situaciones del cielo. Ver la evolución de las nubes y los cambios de luz es un espectáculo magnífico. Lo que no es tan glorioso es el clima y esas tormentas breves y que pueden ser destructivas y poco arreglan la falta de agua. Me temo un otoño muy malo, ojalá me equivoque.

Gracias Marije.
Sí, fotogénico pero lejos de ser glorioso, como dices. Algo similar ocurrió sobre Córcega ese mismo día, pero fue mucho más destructivo. Dios sabe lo que pasará en otoño e invierno. Me imagino gente bajando del Monte Toro con eskis :(
