Hailstones and solid fuel delivery

All the severe weather warnings and locals telling us it was warmer last week, which means the temperature will soon plummet, persuaded us to get our next wood delivery sorted out and the chimney swept (wood stove is our only form of heat - luckily the ceiling fan makes this quite effective despite the hopeless insulation).

Anyhow, as the wood is delivered (the day after the shortest day!), we end up with a hailstorm!

The day of the wood delivery - a mixture of bluegum (1m^3), oregon(2m^3), pine offcuts(1m^3), hail(1ltr) and rain(10ltrs)!
