Sun 21 Mar 1779: Just at the time of preaching at Bromwich Heath, began such a storm as that which ushered in the year. Yet as no house could contain the people, I was constrained to stand in the courtyard. For a moment I was afraid of the [roof] tiles falling on the people; but they regarded nothing but the Word. As I concluded, we had a furious shower of hail: hitherto could the prince of the power of the air go, but no farther.
