About a week and a half ago in the middle of a beautiful spring day we had a flash hail storm. This picture was taken no longer than 20-30 seconds after the hail started. The hail only came down for about 10 - 15 minutes but it covered everything and was about the size of a pencil eraser at its smallest. At this point although hard to see, it had covered the tops of all the vehicles and was gathering fast around the yard. I took 2 shots and was just about to move in closer when my camera batteries died. Very odd time for hail considering we never had any this winter.
