I have promised a few of you I will upload the video I recorded when my Zed sustained £5,500 worth of damage by the hail storm we experienced in Burbage/Hinckley, Leicester.
I was at work at the time, when the air started to feel very humid and the sky went really dark. I decided to go outside to have a look at the sky when I noticed a odd-looking cloud. I decided to take a photo of it which is below.
It then started thundering and lightning - not like what we normally see in the UK. It was more like a tropical storm. I decided to take a video of this as it wasn't normal. As soon as I started recording, the hail just began to fall.
I captured the whole storm on video.
Within 8 minutes, all the surrounding roads were flooded, even Arctic lorries were struggling to drive through!
I suggest you mute the sound, I don't think you want to hear my extremely excited voice - VERY EMBARRASSING!
