Good thing you didn't get hit in the face.

When we were kids, my brother and I ran around out in the yard during pea sized hail with my mom's big stainless steel mixing bowls over our heads. While we were out in the street it turned into golf ball sized hail. Head ok. Back, arms legs, and most of all fingers = ouch.

When I was married and lived in Texas.(yes I have an ex in Texas)

Her mothers car was totaled by hail.

Beat the ever living shit out of it, no glass left,roof caved in.

Then their house, got scrambled as well.

Back in '85 or so ( those years are kind fuzzy for me)

Anybody that had a truck with a magnetic sign on the side became a roofer.

Screwed up Arlington pretty bad, not to mention the rest of Fort Worth.

They used to show that storm on rescue 911.

big festival down at the park that beat the shit out of everybody there.

This is back when COPS was just showing up on TV.

We had a good one hit the center of Austin a couple weeks back. My boss lost all the windows on the east side of his house. His son lost 17 windows. Hardball to softball sized - and hard enough that they did not melt for hours - storm hit 9-10, and hail was still on the ground in the morning..

In the twin cities? If so I'm there also. I got narrowly missed, but I've got a relative who was caught out on 494 and blasted by hail in her car.
