Hailstorm! Welcome to Spring, Oklahoma...

It's springtime in Oklahoma, and with that comes our (in)famous thunderstorms, and associated weather activity. Today, a line of severe thunderstorms rolled through eastern Oklahoma, and left behind a lot of those little white ice-balls called "hail".

At my house, it hailed for a good twenty minutes, starting with tiny BB-sized balls, and ultimately working up to 1.5" in diameter. Here are a few shots of the bigger hailstones:


This was the biggest hailstorm I've personally experienced.
