366 Days of 2012, Day 236 - Storm Surge

Today we all got hammered!

First it rained, then it hailed, then it blew a gale, it hailed some more, it blew some more and most were content to be huddled in a warm cosy place and not out in this late Winter storm.

Then as if by magic the sun came out, the sky turned blue and I grabbed the opportunity to photograph some of the surf action at our local beach. For about an hour the sun shone, the surfers played in the storm chop and I came to realize that I'm not as fit as I'd like to be for this kind of thing!

As quickly as the break came, it disappeared again. The sun vanished, the grey clouds returned, the rain started lashing and we were back in our stormy Winter again.
