It is only a short walk from the car park but weather went from sunny to horizontal hail with thunder and lightning in a couple of minutes. Zero delay between flash and roar led me to hunker down in a small pit until the storm passed over I hope the shorts and singlet wearing runner made it back home safely.M3WDD27/03/2016
