In a similar vein, years ago when I used to go mountaineering, I was on the side of a mountain in the Torridons (Scotland) when it started to hail. What we saw from about 2000 ft was remarkable: the hailstones were falling past us and were then caught in an up-draught. They were carried up and fell again, this seemed to be repeated with a swirling, circular motion until they were heavy enough to fall to Earth. It was quite fascinating to see this 'weather in action'.
