Oh My Goodness, that's a lot of hail. In that first pic, I thought it was some kind of rock formation, until I studied the pic a little. Wow.

I saw that on the news tonight. It does look like somebody standing next to a rock until you realize that it is large hail piled that high. Unbelievable weather.

The Blue Bonnet crop is great this year. Just about everywhere I've been around Ding Dong they're everywhere and I've heard they're even better over in the hill country.

Wow. I'v seen bad hail storms before but nothing to this extreme. Wonder if it was soft hail or hard.

Glad we don't get hail like that up here. I wouldn't have believed that without seeing the pictures. It's amazing what mother nature can dish out!
