Earlier today a storm quickly descended on Hobart.

Looks like the #Hobart storm might be working on a wall cloud?

What seemed like a normal rain storm quickly turned into a hail storm.

Hobart was officially drowning in a sea of hail.

Streets were quickly cleared within minutes of the storm starting.

But as quick as it began, it was over.

This family's patio sail became a net for the hail.

#hobartstorm Our patio sail has a smashing collection of hail stones. No pun intended.

Once again it was safe to go outside.

Not the most ideal start to summer.

This is summer in #Hobart @Heart1073 #hail #storm
