Severe hailstorm – Witches being blamed.
“Remember back in the old days, during the Little Ice Age, when hail storms would sweep across and destroy crops, livestock, entire towns?” asks reader.
“Yeah, it’s happening again.”
“Very large hail hit parts of of Germany, Italy, France and Austria over the weekend, prompting officials to declare the highest alert level.
“Extensive damage has been reported to agriculture, especially vineyards, and this years harvest has been put at serious risk.
“Damaged cars and broken glass have also been reported.
“Throw in a few ‘witches’ being blamed (and burned at the stake) for the bad weather, and we’re right back in the dark ages.”
The A2 motorway near Hartberg, southeastern Austria, was covered with a thick blanket of hail, turning it white.
