Just a regular sunny afternoon in La Paz… with hail showers!

26 Feb

From a sunny afternoon, to 12 minutes of intense HAIL SHOWERS, back to a calm and warm end of the day… That’s La Paz… gotta love the ‘Paceño weather’! :o

At 4:00pm, a regular sunny Monday, like many others…

before the showers

Right around 4:30pm




Finally, at 4:42pm [yeap, I had a stopwatch!]…


How not to love this? If you don’t like the weather… just wait a few minutes, and it’s guaranteed to change! :o

    I think hail is the strangest of weather happenings!

      I know! Not quite rain… and yet, it falls from the sky, and not quite snow, although it’d leave the tiny pieces of ice all around… very strange… intriguing and yet, so beautiful! :o

    Easy life for weather forecasters. ‘Weather fine with hail and showers. ‘
