Warnig, Hail the Size of Golf Balls

Well, we had lots of fun yesterday... hail the size of golf balls and bigger!! Here is a picture of one of the smaller ones. I wished I would have gotten more pictures.

It blew a couple of holes in my daughters porch awning but no other real damage. Sure was strange watching it come down... looked like someone was up there throwing them down as hard as they could throw them.

I remember as a kid, we were camping in the Big Horns and it hailed. It dented our moter home all up on one side. What we had yesterday didn't last as long but it sure was bigger.

Holy heck, that thing is huge. We dont' have a lot of hail here in RI, but we did get some when I was living in AZ. But, nothing like that. You're lucky that only the awning was damaged.

That is enormous. I'm glad it didn't do any more damage.

WOW! That's crazy. I think I have seen hail that size once here in NY. I was pretty young. I can remember it ruined the siding on my parents house. Glad it didn't do very much damage.

Yikes! They look as big as golf balls. Do you often get hails like this or is it because of the El Nino effect that's making all our weather system wacky? Btw, hope everyone was bump-free!
