Nothing like being jarred awake by the sound of hail beating the shit out of everything you own.

It's 72 degrees, so by the time the hail stopped enough to grab some, they had melted some. These are about raquetball size.

And we have another big cell on the way. Yippee.

That's some nasty stuff there Bob.

You know, I was pretty sure I knew what you looked like. As you age you are starting to look more like Roy75!

that's some big hail! Last night here in OKC at about 1:30 am there was some pea size hail and the sound of a tornado siren going off for about 15 minutes, I don't think a tornade ever touched down here but at least they had the sirens working in case! In Lawrence when that tornado or micro burst hit, the sirens didn't go off till after the fact and it hit a few blocks from where I lived.

If you lived in Arkansas, that would have never happened. Everything's not bigger in Arkansas.

Dude, were you aware your house appears to be infested with rodents? While you're worried about snapping a picture of ice there's a rat licking its but on your chair.

That's a bunch of craziness. Hopefully nothing got it too badly.

The wind was whipping around here so fast this morning I thought it was gonna tip my work trailer over.

A factory west of here is reporting that they had softball size hail come through the roof. Numerous reports of car windshields smashed.

It's not going to be pretty in the daylight.

News is now reporting the biggest cell is down to only 900 lightning strikes an hour. It was at 3000 strikes per hour when it went through here.

There aren't as many dents in the CX as there were in the RX a few years ago, but some of them are doozies.

At least maybe Bob Dole can get a new roof out of the deal. :)

It snowed here in Sidrock yesterday also. I most certainly want global warming back. It was better.

The '63 Ford caught at least one dent, as well. Hit right on the corner of the roof...

Allstate treated Bob Dole right the last time around. State Farm jerked Bob Dole around pretty good years ago.

A lot of folks got it a lot worse than Bob Dole. Quite a few windows smashed, and many of them broken all the way out.

That's some nice sized hail which got me thinking - I wonder what's the largest size hail recorded?

<!--- startbody -->It's official. The thunderstorm that pounded south-central Nebraska in June ended up leaving something for the record books: The largest hailstone ever recovered in the United States, a seven-inch (17.8-centimeter) wide chunk of ice almost as large as a soccer ball.
