    A couple years ago we had golf ball size. Every house in town got a new roof.

    Sure was a hail storm! We got some of the same last evening. It broke the flood lights out on our neighbors house. Beat leaves off trees, too.

    Sure calmed down today, though. Supposed to be clear and hot thru next Wed.

    Prayers for you and sympathy to those who lost dear ones. Funny shapes of hail?

    I hope you don't get to see any bigger - it is devastating when they are. We live in a hailstone 'belt' where they are usually the size of cherries. However, every now and then they are 'golf balls' or 'oranges' and we have to repair roofs, windows and cars.

    We had one hit central Florida about ten years ago. Had to replace the roof, all the windows (dents in the frames), two out buildings and the car. All told......$22,000. Oh, and totally destroyed all the plants I had just spent two weeks planting. My Gardenias and Camelias were just sticks.

    Do you get that kind of weather often? I have a recent college graduate looking for a teaching job in the Carolinas-are there any areas you would suggest looking? We are from Illinois. Thanks

    Usually when we in Nebraska get hail that size, we have dents and new roofs. Have an insurance adjuster check it out to be sure.

    We got that also.. here is a picture from our back porch of it coming down.. it was bigger than golf balls.

    The ground around here looked like someone had taken a weed wacker to the trees. all the deciduous trees were totally beaten up.

    sorry.. this is sideways

    Oh, that's large. on the other hand, put all four together and you will see the kind of hail we have in Oklahoma. a few years back we had some the size of grapefruits that broke the cement tile we had for a roof. hail of any size is bad, the very least, it shreds the plants.

    I am still raking up branches, leaves and sticks in my yard. The hail here at my house was baseball size last Saturday. The weather people here said the largest hailstones in this area on Sat. were 5 1/2 inches in diameter. I have had the roof looked at already, we will see what the insurance co. says.

    Glad you are ok.
    My DS who is a trucker, was there yesterday when it hit. He said it was awful. He didn't know whether to pull over some where or keep going. He opted for the latter.
    Stay safe.
