'Those clouds look like a tornado. Do you get tornadoes here?'
'Yes we had one down the caravan site once,' replies a local woman.
Meanwhile first showie caravans and wagons on the Links. Pictures now available in the Gurn flickr digital museum.

Yes, and I was caught in it on the stretch between Merryton Stores and Grants Garage. I thought I would make it over to Boath Park before it came on. Where I got the strength to hang on to my big Silvercross pram with baby inside I will never know ... My legs were bleeding with the force of the hailstones. So roughly speaking that would be about 29 years or so ago.

Ah yes I remember that, I was in school (the Academy)you could not see 3 feet in front of you the rain was so heavy.
My mother who worked in a local bakers remembers as well saying "the high street was like a river with hailstones the size of golf balls"..
Ah those were the days.... hahaha..
