spitting ice cubes

At around 1 am this morning the sky over Madrid spat out a violent torrent of ice cubes that shattered car windows and destroyed plants. Terra cotta rooftops sung in a frenzied cacophony of tings and pings. We had to close our metal shutter to prevent hail from crashing into our apartment. When we opened our door to take photos, we were pelted in the head and arms and our floor was quickly covered in white ice pebbles. Some even made it as far as our couch across the room!

what force!
