Williams Lake has been known to receive heavy rain and even hail in the summer months but last Wednesday’s hail storm in the city was more powerful than usual turning the skies black, issuing deep roars of thunder and lightning (one striking a tree near 11th Avenue) and turning lawns at the Williams Lake Golf and Tennis Club white with hail stones.
