there's limits.

The temperatures dropped 10f in 5 minutes and it's lightening!
Oh and hailing.



It ain't worth it for a mild.

That hail looks big enough to hurt. I vote for doing some QA work on the inventory.

that sucks! We had a hail storm here in NY last week for about 20 minutes it hailed **** ranging in size from bb's to marbles, fortunately I wasn't brewing at the time but it messed up my garden a bit. we also had rain coming down so hard in that 20 minutes the street turned into a raging river.

Are you on your roof during a hail storm or just taking a pic from a window?
