Hail something

Because Timaru seldom has any exciting weather, a hailstorm is definitely blog-worthy. It started up quite suddenly out of a sullen sky, and although we have no actual proof, witnesses say that there was snow interspersed with the hail.  A significant amount of hail came down though which was still lying around thickly in many areas the next morning.  In fact, even the next afternoon we had a lot of ice in the back garden still.  Aaron scraped a few handfuls of hail together to build a little snowman, so the next morning on the way to school he wondered aloud whether it was still standing.  "It's not a snowman, it's a hailman," I said.  Caleb's quick quip: "It's not a hailman, it's a Heil Hitler!" :)
