It was a dark and stormy night in Berkeley on Fri 18 Mar 2011 – lightning, thunder and hail.
We see hail about once a year in Berkeley, but never for this long … and it’s the first time I ever remember being able to walk on a carpet of hailstones.
The girls (Poudini and Baby T) were safe and sound inside the house, so I decided to take video of the hail rattling upon our skylight … and then a flash of lightning. It seems to have been particularly strong in Thousand Oaks, Westbrae and the Berkeley Hills – a client told us that the lightning struck the huge redwood tree in the yard of the home we sold for him last year.
The deck and garden look particularly lovely, don’t they?
