great hailstorms and tempests come in the summer.
For sometimes they are created in the air, for
great cold often comes about there, such that the moisture
that is born in the air becomes frozen and congealed,
amassed by the heat that has chased it there.
Then the sun holds it close and hardens it, so that
it falls to the earth. But not as much falls to the earth
as is created above, for as it falls it breaks apart and
loses its force. This is the tempest, in which all the
hail falls. [rubric:] of lightning, or light flashes, and thunder [/rubric]
Many things come to pass in the air that people rarely
talk about. For they do not think about
things they know little about. That thing
what makes the earth quake and the clouds thunder
