Hail In Waipawa?

This week had me staying with some awesome friends at their place in Waipawa, New Zealand.  For those that have no idea where this township can be found, it is about a five minute drive from Waipukurau in the Hawkes Bay.

It turns out that Mother Nature wanted to make herself known so decided to throw a hail storm.  Check out some of the photographs taken just before the storm broke….

Hail is brewing up in those clouds....
Dark, dark clouds...

Here is a video of the hail storm making itself known…..
