There’s getting caught in the rain…and then there’s getting caught in the hail…
Yesterday, February 23rd, at or around 4:30 p.m., a flash hail storm overtook the skies of the Greater Victoria area.
Like a flash mob, the flash hail storm overtook the streets, confused the people, and forced everyone inside.
But as quickly as people sheltered themselves, their dogs, and their eyes from the little balls of ice, the hailstorm cleared, the people rejoiced, and the groundhogs got their sunscreen ready.
