Wow! Those are huge hail stones. Saw your car window, sorry for your loss. How bad was the rest of the car? And your house siding & roof? Been thru this type of hail storm before and it wasn't pretty. Good Luck to you & yours. M

Bummer Gary - I got caught out in a hail storm like that in Kansas City one time - my cousin's car was destroyed - not fun. Those are some huge hail stones, was that from the same storm system that started in the midwest?

Looks like that storm was quite wide, from East Tennessee, to North and South Carolina.

They had gotten flat from melting. They lost their round shape preaty quick. Warm ground. My brother down the street called an hour later and his yard and roof were still white.

I am from Montana and still having snow storms.Glad ours is in the form of flakes and not frozen balls of ice. My son found that one of the hail balls in the one ball closest to your fingers is in the shape of a heart. That is kinda cool. Never seen a heart shaped hail stone before.

Yikes! I remember once, when we were camping at the Coal Mine Campground in West Virginia, that there was another camper, with a huge rig, who traveled around fixing the hail damage at the car dealerships throughout the region. Never thought about it being one of the behind-the-scenes issues when buying a car. Hope your windshields can be fixed readily, and inexpensively!

Thank you everyone, I would rather not have the opportunity, but the Canon jumped right in my hand. Will check the roof in the morning.

About Railheel

Railheel

My name is Gary and I'm a retired railroader. I have always enjoyed photography and now that I have the time I take lots of photos. My late wife of 40 years and I traveled from our home in Western North Carolina to her home in Ridgecrest Calif. one or more times a year. Our love is going to National Parks as we traveled this great land of ours. We have been blessed by seeing over 30 Parks showing Gods Wonders. WeatherUnderground allows me to visit across this country and around the world from my recliner.
