I'm glad we don't get hailstones that big.

Wow..did you see that one house? The roof is just full of holes from the hail.

I feel bad for them, the repair bill is going to be high.

A couple of years ago we had hailstones the size of golf balls. Really unnerving to be sitting in your house listening to that.

They were about the same size as those that struck us in Melbourne 2 years ago on Christmas day. Luckily, all I lost was a skylight but several friends had their cars pretty smashed up and a work colleague had pretty bad roof damage. It took almost 6 months for all the repairs in the area to be completed, there just weren't enough tradesmen to go around and insurance companies were dragging their feet as far as quite a few people I know were concerned. It was the first and hopefully last time we see anything like it.

The roofs in this village seem pretty fragile to be so pockmarked, I guess some of those buildings would be very old.

I would also be worried about being caught out in that. The size of those stones look dangerous, imagine one of those hitting your head!
