We even had a small amount of hail – although nothing like that of the last big storm.

We found quite a few cherry tomatoes that had been literally blown off the vine. On closer inspection you can see most of these tomatoes are split. This usually occurs with rapid temperature changes exactly like those we have been experiencing in Perth.
