Remember yesterday I mentioned that they predicted today to be somewhat wintery. They were right.
We had a rain shower in the morning, but at lunchtime another storm came through with wind and lots of small hail. In about a quarter of an hour the temperature dropped 8 degrees. At 1.30pm it was 12 degrees. At a quarter to two it was 4 degrees!!!!!
In Orange it was MINUS 1.5 degrees. Yes, on the surrounding hills there was snow! Remember it is only a few weeks since we had temperatures into the 30s with higher than average temperatures during March.
I took this photo as I left work this afternoon. It doesn’t do it justice. The sky was inky black with a double rainbow. There is snow in them there clouds.
Fortunately, the forecast is for the temperature to be back in the low 20s later in the week, so I won’t pack all the summer tops away just yet.
