  • Hail

    Our forecast was for some thunderstorms and potentially heavy rain. For about 5 minutes we got the biggest hail I've ever seen in my life. Pictures attached...

          Nice! I experienced hail like that once when I was in Winnipeg. It was a hot and humid summer day and I was out walking with my baby girl when it suddenly became obvious that a storm was about to hit. I sensed that it was going to be a pretty serious storm and ran back to the cottage. Seconds later, the hail started pounding down. The sound of it was unbelievable. It lasted about 5-10 minutes, then the sun came back out.

          I was glad that I had decided to run.

          I think I have it on video somewhere in my tapes. :)
          Peace through fear... since 1947!

              Single car, yes, but we have two vehicles. :(

              I thought my car got through it with a couple of minor dents but then I noticed the arch in the windshield. Looking closer it appears a single piece of hail hit and then it cracked in an arch around the impact point. Good thing is my comprehensive deductible is only $100.

                Always good to have your priorities straight :D

                I'm in Minneapolis, and we're snowed in today .... plows aren't keeping up with it, and fun stuff's happening in the streets. Interestingly, it was 50 degrees nearly all last week....

                Hope it clears up for next weekend, I have a flight to catch :O

                  Boy that's some serious hail. Not a good time to be out taking a walk.

                    Finally we got rain. We need a whole more. The mountains to the north looked nice with snow on them.

                      We were seeing snow in the San Francisco area down to 1000 feet last week. A lot of locals have never been in snow so we had a few traffic snafus as cars went sliding into each other. I work at an office just above sea level (Point Richmond, on the east side of the San Rafael bridge) and hail the size of small gravel was coming down Friday evening.

                        Heh, here in Fairfax(10 MI outside of DC) we were in the 80's for temprature. :)

                        I have to say, that is some big ass hail.....wow....
                        War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling that thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety is a miserable creature, who has no chance at being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself. -- John Stuart Mill--
