Here are some pictures of what just raced through here.
I have never seen hail this big.
My hand is holding four in one pic and one in the other.

We are in Kannapolis, NC

Blessings to all,
Sandi

Those'll put a dent in your car, for sure. Probably wouldn't feel very good hitting your head, either!

Wow! When hail that big hit this area years ago it destroyed siding on houses, and dented cars. Glad it appears the storm was quick and the hail wasn't solid round pieces that big. It would have been much worse for you if it had been. Thanks for sharing the pictures.

Big hail, that size could do a lot of damage to a lot of things. I'm glad you are okay.

I just came in from checking our car.
No damage.

Praise The Lord for his divine protection.

And yes being hit with hail of any size does hurt.

Blessings to all,
Sandi
