We had a spot of bad weather today by kazzzz on 6 March 2010 9:47am
 
A huge storm cell formed over Melbourne today and we had hailstones the size of tennis balls and the whole city flooded! Here are a few images.

My brother had three windows smashed in his house, his decking roof smashed and his car battered with huge hailstones and damaged heaps.

Gawd, Kaz. I was caught in one of those and my car got dents in it. The insurances companies had field days with car repairs, roof repairs, tree debris removal, etc. When I finally got home, you couldn't recognize my car at all. There were so many leaves and branches from the trees I stopped my car under while the hailstones came down. I was on a steep slant on my way home from work when it hit suddenly. I'll never forget it. I hope you got out without any damage to property or cuts and knocks on the bod! Your brother's situation sounds a lot like mine.

Thank goodness you're OK! We get weird stuff out here, such as storms coming in off Lake Michigan in the east, horizontal snow, lightning hitting some 50 yards from our back door, but nothing like that. OY!
