I grew up in Queensland, so I have been caught out before on many occassions in severe hail and rain storms... On the 6th March, 2010, the heavens decided to open on Melbourne city and suburbs.
Hails stones large enough to cause irrepairable damage to cars and property, and to injure many helpless people caught out in the open. This, closely followed by major flash flooding, really does display how small we are as human beings in relation to the fury and power of mother nature (thanks to my Mum for sharing these images with me).
