It was a beautiful and warm spring day outside, so what’s in it other than to shoot, and this time for a movie. But no matter how ... The sky soon went into the cloud and the icy cold north wind began to blow. I thought about the inadequacy of the amount of clothing until I woke up when something white started dripping from the sky. Granules. Now it was only the cold that came. The rain was very dense and covered the whole country very quickly. Slightly larger than usual granules dripped onto the camera. I shivered to the end of the rain and went back inside inside in my cold. It's this sp...

Two hailstorms in a row, when we drove a car in Turku, watching great deaf cloud plays. We estimate the largest granules in the size range of approx. 8mm. The hail turned into such an intermediate form of a gutter and granules, about which I will comment later ;-)

Behind the curtain, the window sill crumbled at about 11.30, but I just thought it was water. It wasn’t until 12:53 that I noticed from the window that the ground was white.

When I got home, there was a bit of a cursed weather, but when hail started to come instead of water and sleet, the mood towards the weather started to improve a bit. The granules came with the contract, so the weather drove the birds to the bird board.

The grocery store parking lot was surprised by a hail for a few minutes. At their largest, the granules were about 8 mm in diameter. The first image shows the index finger on a scale. After a while, the hail began to turn into a sleet.

I was with my grandson on an afternoon walk and a little hail surprised, it didn't bother me we always had rain gear with us, but when we had already come back inside, the hail came really hard, the roofs of the cars in the yard were quite white for a moment.
