A Massive Hailstorm! - 2014-06-24

This was the most powerful hail storm I have experience. And I have been through a lot of hail over the years! These hailstones sounded like they were going to come through the roof. I picked up some stones that rebounded onto the porch. There was no way I was going to step out into the storm to pick up choice bigger ones. That would have been suicidal. These in the photos were ones I picked up from the rebound from where it was safe. This storm lasted long and very powerful for a long time. My poor car got nailed. Broke the brake light. Broke the rear wiper. But all in all didn't change the value of my beater car any so not so bad for me. I feel for the neighbors.
