We've just had a hail storm go through, going to be great for the apple crop if it's to extensive, the wind stopped this after noon after weeks and then this. Motueka had a thrashing a few weeks ago that broke hail netting supports, who'd want to be making a living with the weather as variable as this.

I circumnavigated the entire South Island last week for work and the bad weather was everywhere.
When I was in Oamaru on Wednesday afternoon we got a bad hail storm too. I picked a few of them up and they measured 20-25mm.

Breeding black Wiltshire shedding sheep.

Full shedding, easy care, good feet, easy lambing and good mothering is what it takes to make the breeding cut!

Ours was about half that size, which was quite bad enough :-(. I had to go outside during the hailing to clear the gutters that were being blocked by. Hail stings ....
