    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,

    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

    The rain was coming down sideways here for a while.
    Still have hail on the ground and more rain is coming.

    Be safe, all those in the path of these storms.
    They are powerful.

    Blessings,
    Sandi

    Wow! I think the biggest hail I've seen in person was, maybe, 1/4" across!

    Stay safe!!

    Wow...that's big. A couple of days ago my area got hit with a bad storm. There was 3 1/2" hailstones in Bellbrook & Centerville Oh. My area just got a bad thunderstorm. Friends that live in Bellbrook had hail damage to their roof, the siding on their house will have to be replaced and 2 cars have broken windshield & big dents all over. The leaves from their trees were stripped & plastered all over their house. Very Scary.

    Oh goodness Sandi...glad to hear no damage. We had hail last week and while it looked like snow piled up nothing like what you got. I have been enjoying our spring type weather and have been out doing some yard work but it won't last long another rain storm on the way.

    That exactly the size of hail that fell in some towns near me a couple of days ago. Friends really had some damage to their cars & homes. It was 3 1/2" and looked like a baseball...just like in your picture. I hope you didn't have a lot of damage.

    Hubby saw hail that big years ago.
    Such destruction with hail that size.

    Glad you guys are okay from that.
