Hail to the Chief

The local weather service dramatically prepared us for hail last night. It's odd how in our modern age, the measurement of hail is still in the dark ages - or the 1940's.
It's all baseballs and hen eggs and nickels!
I think it'd be more fun if there was a definite geographic/cultural "fingerprint" on the hail.

Here are some offerings for new hail denominations:
In Texas:
We got hail here the size of a shotgun shell!
.....the size of a squirrel skull!
.....the size of endangered frogs!
.....the size of tumbleweeds!
.....the size of cow patties!

In Washington State:
As you can see, the hail is Grande toward the north part of town, in the south you're dealing with Tall.

In California:
This snow sure hurts!

  1. Lol, we DO know what hail is out here in CA! That's awesome. I'd love to see some shotgun shell hail. :-)
