    Saturday night @ 730 PM a hailstorm went thru Oshawa (the 3rd downpour of the day).

    The hail ranged in size from peas to nickels. I had just finished cleaning my bike from Friday's ride. There was a darker cloud approaching from the west (sunny towards the north & south). Visibility seem to be reduced real quick (looking westward) & all of a sudden the wind picked up & the hail started. Funny no thunder or lightning though.

    Freakish weather for sure. Where is that?

    I ended up riding Durham today just in case the ground would be a mess, great conditions though

    Looks like someone's front brake cable needs to be zip tied to the fork leg, begging for a branch to catch it ....

    Sounds like an accident & life-threatening injuries waiting to happen.
