Hail is the best of all precipitations. This storm had four rounds of increasing size hail. It all melted away rather quickly and flooded off down the channels then the sun shone before the storm finished. Car alarms sounded, people appeared in doorways and at windows, ran for cover, concerned for exposed automobiles, gardens, roofs, pets, their belongings and their own heads. The air chilled. Bracing all around. Then the tornado sirens screamed in the distance again as they did yesterday.
Most of the hail bounced out of the baskets. Too bad, or else they'd be full.
