You Learn Something New Every Day if You Are Paying Attention! by The Elephant's Child

There was a big hailstorm yesterday in Guadalajara, Mexico. I saw that this morning, and then promptly forgot where it happened, and started looking for the article, and learned that massive drops of hail happen somewhat frequently — at least there were other examples in the Western hemisphere, Argentina, Denver. I never knew that was possible. My experience with hail was that it came looking much like white peas, at least the hail as I knew it was pea size.

I had heard about big hailstones in some places, even big enough to break some fragile windows, but in such quantity that it ended up with several feet, I had never heard or read of. One finds new or unexpected things in the news frequently, and you just say a mental “Oh!” and feel that you learned something new. Hail in 3 and 5 foot dumps means you have to get out the snowplows and shovels!
