Hailstorm in Islamabad
I had meant to write about this a couple of days ago as I had captured some nice images but could not find the time. So here's the post now.
A few days ago there was a hail storm in Islamabad . It was a brief shower but one that my children enjoyed very much. I had read somewhere that hailstones can be as big as grapefruits and oranges but mercifully these were just the size of peas and grapes.
The above picture shows the hail stones that collected between folds of a sack on the rooftop of my house. The ones that fell on roads and roof melted very quickly as it is summer time here and the surface was warm.
It can quite a sight watching icy hailstones fall during warm temperatures. Isn't Nature amazing? Have you ever been caught in a hailstorm?
