Mother Nature’s Shotgun

The hail that pelted North Texas this past week was pretty impressive….although I’m sure car dealers have a different word for it :

This is after more than 12 hours of hail sitting in the sun.  Car dealers in Weatherford told me the pellets were originally as big as tennis balls. Ouch.

This pile of hail had accumulated on a tent, collapsed the tent, and poured off the top. It’s sort of strange to see a pile of hail, in April, in 80 degree weather.

We’ve all seen the hail damage pics, but this one reminded me of a shot out window:

 

If you have any odd damage pics, send them my way at omar.villafranca@nbcuni.com

  1. These are some great hail pictures Omar! That pile of hail is wild!

    You can see some from our gallery on our site. We’ve got a few crazy pictures of damaged siding and roofing being torn off by wind-blown hail.
