You’re at the beach with some friends and/or family, enjoying the sun, nibbling on some watermelon. All of a sudden, within seconds, the weather shifts and hail starts descending from the sky. Write a post about what happens next.

(If you need visual inspiration, this happened last week in Russia.)


First, I’d make sure that the watermelon is safe. I’d wrap it in a beach towel, try to find shelter and then consume the melon while watching the rest of the beach bums seek cover.

Hailstones are  painful; so I’d make sure I’d be sprinting my way out of there. I’d collect some stones just to see what they look like. Hailstones are a rare occurrence here in Mumbai.

Then, I’d  go home to write  a post describing my “hailowing” experience.

Cheers!
