    Wow, did it cause any damage or was it soft enough not to dent? I was in Maricopa paintballing, it rained slightly there, no hail though. :thumb:

    It was basically little m+m sized balls of snow . I have other pics at home I took after these that show my backyard in white . I made some snowballs to throw , got my wife , and when i wasn't looking Dave tagged me from behind his truck :D

    That's not hail, it's just frozen rain drops! ;) We had golf ball size hail here back in July. It came down HARD for about 45 minutes. Did $15K in damage to the trucks and another $11K to the house. It was hitting the ground so hard that it was bouncing 4 feet off the ground. :eek:

    We would of welcomed hail like you got . Its been so long since we had a steady winter rain pattern that everyones excited . Hell the Salt River is running across the 2 lane road I usually go to work on across the Reservation . That hasn't happened in a long time . It can only do good :)

    I can't wait for the spring after this winters rains . A couple years back we had a semi OK winter with lots of runoff dumping nutrients into the resevoirs , and the largemouth action that spring was awesome . This spring I am gonna have to keep buying my wife roses , I have "just one more cast" disease :D
