What: Horizontal sheets of blueberry-size hail.
A rapid moving storm front dumped up to an inch of pea to blueberry size hail in our yard.
Not wanting to bike MLK in a tonight’s downpour, I called my wife for a ride home. While on the phone with her, all hell broke loose. All I could hear over the phone was a general din as she and my son ran through the house closing windows – yelling to each other about buckets of rain, pounding hail and tornadic winds.
