GRA Sierra Nevada after Hail 03If you had viewed the Sierra Nevada webcams yesterday you would have been amazed to see the slopes under a white carpet… in August.

The thunderstorms that were marching around behind the coastal mountains not only covered the mountains in a layer of hailstones, but the lightning strikes also started small and easily tackled forest fires in Algarinejo, Diezma and Colomera.

Even as close to the coast as Otivar, villagers saw a short shower, accompanied by rumbling thunder, leaving behind that scent that only parched, mountain brush can produce after the first end-of-summer rains.
