The April showers of weather lore certainly did materialise this April. It was just in time for the Easter holidays of course. Hail, sleet, rain and a biting cold wind from the north east – just perfect for sitting in and munching on chocolate eggs. As the old farming spake goes, March will try and April will see whether whether you live or die – so it goes for the poor oul animals in the fields. Stalker has never seen blacker skies framed against cerulean blue before, and hail showers that would knock yer block off.
