Global Warming or Ice Age?

We have just had a refreshing storm, which has been forcast for a few days. It lasted all of about 20 minutes!

One day, the forecast is red-alert for forest fires, and the next day, we had orange-alerts for flooding and/or storms.

The photo is not a stray ice-cube, but a hailstone. In the video, the white flashes are a mixture of very large raindrops and hailstones. If you listen, you can hear the hailstones hitting things. (I've checked my car, and there is no damage to the roof, but it is certainly a reminder that we need to decide where to build the car-port!)
