1- It rained and hailed alot. I received .6 of an inch here at the house. Let me know what you all received and if you took pics of the hail, post them here so we can check them out. Most of the hail was dime and nickel size but then the quarter and some larger fell. After seeing some pics sent directly to me, some looked to be near golf ball size. Keep up the good work, spotters to be!! J
