Win­ter blast hits to wel­come spring

McIvor Times - - FRONT PAGE -

FOR a brief time Heath­cote was turned into a win­ter won­der­land on Mon­day when the heav­ens opened and hail fell over the area. Sa­mara John­son was one res­i­dent able to cap­ture the re­sult­ing scenes. ‘‘I’ve got twins and they thought it was snow­ing out­side with how white the grass was from the hail,’’ Sa­mara said. ‘‘There was heavy rain for about fif­teen min­utes, then it was lighter for an­other fif­teen be­fore the hail hit.’’ The Bureau of Me­te­o­rol­ogy re­ported 2.6mm of rain for Heath­cote.
