The first hail

On Friday, May 14th 2010, around 3 o’clock pm I wintnessed the first (hopefully last) hail of the season. If it has to happen, better now than in August. Now the vines are very elastic and the damages are limited, even though the hail did cause some problems as you can see from the pictures.

  • First of all thanks for your english correction and for your nice comments. In the next days we will have a confirmation about damages, but I think will have not so many problems. Vines in this period are not so tall so only some longer branch were broken, as I can see the flowers were not effected by hail. Pieces of ice were small like an hazel-nut.
