About to head off to pick up J, looked out of the window - clear. Just the fleece, then.
Just too far to turn back, it started raining, but not heavy. Looked at the sky, reckoned I could make school without getting too wet, and it looked like the ones we had yesterday - not more than 5 minutes and it'd be past.
So I'm under a tree in the playground with J, and the hail starts. Hard. Very hard.
We popped back into the school for a few minutes. By then the moisture was soaking through the fleece and my hair was dripping drips down my face.
It slackened so we set off for home, getting not much more wet really.
Of course it's stopped now.
