Some serious central Alberta hail
« on: July 07, 2011, 10:07:13 PM »
Just had a nasty hail storm it lingered for hours before it gave it up but it was a doozy, very odd, it rained a bit then quit, then it was just big hail stones hammering down.

Those are some wild looking pics!
I remember my sis-n-law calling and telling me about the weather that they were getting in Sundre and about how scary it was.

Ya the weather has been crazy.  Makes for a busy time for us folks in the insurance industry. Can't wait to get out of town hunting.
