Lol, puts a whole new spin on the phrase "Getting rained out". That was both scary to watch, and fascinating.
And after a bit, it dawned on me that they were huddling under metal umbrellas, or at least it sure sounded like it. I kept wincing and waiting for
the obligatory lightning strike nearby. Thankfully, it looks like that didn't happen. Just being pelted with hail.
Well. That hailstorm looked like it was taking no prisoners what so ever! I would be amazed if there were no seriously bruised heads after that
cataclysmic downpour. A lump of ice with a diameter of about three and a half centimetres, which is the size that I would guess the largest of those
hailstones to be, hurtling earthward from the clouds, is going to be moving at a significant rate when it impacts the ground, or indeed anything that
happens to be between the sky and the earth at the time!
Poor blighters. Mind you, of all the ways to be chased of the beach, this beats shark attack, an approaching tsunami wave, or the blast wave from a
thermonuclear device. Another bonus, at least these people no longer need to chill out!
I guess the best place to hide would be underwater. Coming up for air every so often? But how long could you keep that up? I'd be running for a car
to hide under or something. Damn. There's not really any way to escape injury there...
