Snow in JUNE?


Hail
West Odessa, Texas


Oops, no. Not snow. Hail this afternoon! This is what "golfball-size hail" I've heard so much about looks like. And let me tell you, it was noisy too.

We've had those around here. They're big enough to give you a concussion. You definitely don't want to stand out gazing at the sky then.

I saw on the weather where ya'll were getting hammered. My mom had pictures of us running out into hailstorms to collect BASEBALL sized hail. Yeah, we were just a bit nutty back in the day. "Hey kids, run out there and grab a big hailstone so we can take some pictures for Grandma back in Louisiana! Go on Sweetie, run fast! Careful, don't slip in that puddle!"

Noisy and dangerous. Great shot as always.

Yup, that looks like the stuff we went through in NM! I hope it didn't do too much damage.

Lol Gossamer - too true. May explain some of the damaged people around, too many hailstones...
