thread Just had the biggest hail I've ever seen (large marble size)
and the loudest thunder I've ever heard, and torrential rain.

I was planning to get the mower out this evening.
permalink We were missed by a couple of miles
Which is a shame as it was roasting.

Should get some tomorrow.
permalink [warning: nasty]
the Criterium du Dauphiné bike race got some hail today and injured riders
permalink Whoa
I watched that live and didnt see that. Must have been after the finish.

The last 10 days of racing have arguably been one of the best ever
permalink it was raining for the leaders
the hail hit, well, the rest. Especially big lads like Tim there. Apparently the time cut ended up being suspended; someone came in 15 minutes over due to sheltering. there's loads of pictures/videos floating around.

And yes, the whole "race every day as if it's the last day of the season" thing is awesome. Apart from obviously Groenewagn nearly (not on purpose) killing Jakobson
