It is a hot, humid day here - putting us on notice for another stormy afternoon/evening perhaps? Last evening we were outside righting a neighbour's banana tree that was leaning drunkenly towards the ground under the weight of a rapidly maturing bunch of bananas, when we could see storms approaching from the south. That is unusual in these parts, with storms normally dropping off the Great Dividing Range and trundling through our area onwards to the coast.
It got quite windy and rumbly so we finished our propping up and climbed the hill back to the house. By the time we reached the house, raindrops were starting to fall, quickly replaced by small hail. This is the first time we have had hail since we moved here 4 years ago so of course the camera came out.

After about 30minutes we had 28mm in the gauge, so happy we were.
A lovely cool night followed, but then this morning dawned warm, humid and sunny. After feeding the animals I took some pics of what's doing.
