So Cal Hail-pocalypse

so this happened...
i leave work, it's got to be a sunny 65 degrees. i get maybe 2 miles down the street and it got dark and cold. im waiting to turn left and hear thunder.
i get a few miles down the street , hear thunder again, and all hail broke loose! i don't think iv seen hail like this (speaking in terms of volume) ever.

i was passing side streets that looked like they got snowed on. people were pulling over under trees (pussy's), found out what it was like to drive on icey and semi flooded roads.

i get a few more miles down the street, get to a gas station (i needed gas) and it was sunny again

PUT IT IN 4 WHEEL DRIVE MA!

We live in the Appalachian mountains but even we see it rarely. It's like being back in FL, except not as many people from New Jersey.

I saw hail like that in the early 80s at Marina Del Rey.
Unfortunately I was riding motorcycle year around.

Holy crap, that would hurt. Even rain hurts on a bike, I can't imagine getting hit by a golf ball at 50 :D

i don't see how you could ride a bike in that. i was doing maybe 35mph in my truck and could feel it sliding around. a bike? not sure if i would call that ballzy or suicidal :shock:

I only had a mile or so in town to get to work. Back when I was invincible. Been in rain on the highway that hurt worse.
