26th May 1948: "hail storms of great severity which laid like snow"
26 Wed. Very cool, dull; cool, stiff breeze, very heavy showers in morning including hail storms of great severity which laid like snow also a thunder storm of some violence. Got the groceries including tinned peas and a steak and kidney pudding in a tin, also cats fish and a haddock which we had for tea. Gwennie and Donald called to borrow a jam jar. Gwennie’s teacher asked her to get some fish for the school aquarium so she took the jar and a net to the lake at Cannon Hill Common to catch some “tiddlers” or tadpoles but came back empty handed, or should I say empty jarred.
