    Wow, Randy, never saw anything like that and the worst I've seen was some hail just under pea size that drilled holes through the ripe garden tomatoes. Be safe!

    Glad to hear you are okay. Terrible thing to be hit with a damaging storm. I lost a car before Floyd and a basement full of mementos you can’t replace. Stay safe!

    Darn not good news, we do not get the pacific report until a month before hurricane season. Although should get ready now instead of later while it is still cool outside. Yea my old bones complain a lot this year making it harder. I do notice a very hot sun already. Right now ripping out old trellis and walls that will fly, hard work at a turtle pace...it is the kind of work you put off for years until you can not let it stand. Right now we are supposed to have a thunderstorm come through with possible hail today..., never seen hail here in the islands but who knows, the weather is not normal last few years.

    Luckily the hail was south of us, they were jagged ball here too.

    We were lucky here, Randy - lots of rain, high winds, and lightning that looked like the flickering at a rock concert. Continuous roll of thunder from about 0200 to after 0800 - very little sleep...

    That hail can kill a lot of wildlife, too. Ducks and geese in particular.
    Do you get a lot of thunder and lightning with those hail storms?

    started a topic One hail of a storm!

    One hail of a storm!

    A big storms over night. 3in of rain and just south of us on the gulf the got baseball size hail. Hotel and condo parking lots were full with the spring breakers cars. Hundreds of vehicles were damaged, window out and bodies look like some one went at them with a ball-pean hammer. I have not seen that kind of hail storm sense I lived in the Texas panhandle. Not sure how often that happens on the beach.
