Golf Ball ~ Sized Hail!

We recently had a thunderstorm that produced hail. The kids were excited to hear it tapping on the roof. Then the tapping sound changed and it actually sounded like someone was hurling golf balls at our house! Huge balls of hail were bouncing as they landed in the grass in our yard.

When it ended, the kids ran outside to collect the evidence before it melted! We put the pieces of hail on a cookie sheet and put it in the freezer. They have pulled the hail balls out a few times to impress their friends, who usually want to touch and then eat them! :-)

My mom told me about the hail and the storm. She was at Anoka Cov. Church when it all hit and she said it was nearly baseball size in that area. She got some pretty bad damage on the hood of her truck and she said at the post office in Anoka, a few people had windows broken out from the hail.
