Last Sunday, which would have been August 14, I am told a nasty hail storm went through the Cold Lake area. The hail stones were huge, larger than golf balls. One of my husband's customers collected a few and froze them so he could show everyone. He said they melted a bit before he got to them so they were actually larger than this as they came down.
An interesting cross-section of one of the hail stones. Look at the rings. I wonder just how windy it was up there in the clouds before they actually got so heavy that gravity played a role on their release.
I'd hate to have been outside during that storm! There was no mention of significant damage. Can you imagine?
