This hail storm in the summer of 1999 took me by surprise. I saw
the really dark sky as I got home from work, and by the time I got up the
stairs to my apartment, I heard a very loud noise outside. I went to
the window and saw this site, so I grabbed my camera (a little 35mm
point-and-shoot at the time) and shot a few pictures.
Those hail stones were about 1 inch in diameter and up to 2.5 inches
long! I'm a bit surprised there was no damage to my car.
Easter weekend, Tyler Texas. I was heading back to the Dallas area
when I saw this impressive storm front to the east. It spawned
tornadoes near the Texas/Louisiana border.
Take a look at some impressive hail from a storm on April 5th, 2003.
