Melbourne Storms

Melbourne had its biggest storm on record yesterday. Hail the size of golf balls pelted down onto the camera and surrounding roof. It sounded like gun fire. Our family car was dinted and the polycarbonate roof next to the meteor camera was riddled with holes.

Somehow my meteor camera has survived and remains functional. As the storm occurred during the day it did not capture any images of the storm. I'm just grateful it is OK as the camera was only installed for a few weeks...a testament to its all weather construction.

Today it was bucketing down again, but luckily no hail. Now that the roof is so damaged, the water just pours onto the patio!
