McLaren Vale Hail Storm - UPDATE 4/7/2011
McLaren Vale was hit by a severe hail storm in the early afternoon of the 4th of July. Large hailstones fell all across the region, with the western edge of the town having very large stones and ice falls littering the ground.
We feel sorry for the pruners who got smashed by this hail on Rivers Lane. Luckily it looks like the vineyards were already deserted.
The hail also continued into the Adelaide Hills Wine Region. This picture of the K1 by Geoff Hardy Cellar Door looks as if it has snowed.
