According to her, she was full of excitement and called her children to come and see it for the first time in their lives, as it might not happen again for a long time.

A frozen droplet begins to fall from a cloud during a storm but is pushed back up into the cloud by a strong updraft of wind. When the hailstone is lifted, it hits liquid water droplets and falls as rain.
