Tiny white ones, falling from the sky. Hail may not seem worth mentioning, but for me, walking along the street and scurrying along to find cover, the sudden taste of salt was something of a surprise. All the hail in my past has tasted of nothing more than melted water. I.E nothing.
Apparently, the wind has been strong enough over the last day or so to pick up some of the sea water then as it gets carried up, it freezes then comes back down as hail or sleet.
