      I've lived in Texas growing up, and have seen a lot of weird weather there, but nothing like that.

  • I saw these yesterday, and though they say the weather service took actual photos and they are not doctored...I still don't know if I'm buying that...

    4ft of Hail in a few hours??? :confused::confused:

    I think I'd have to actually see it to believe it! Crazy!:rolleyes:

      It was actually several inches of hail pushed up by the floodwaters. When it floods out there it happens hard and fast.

      A hailstorm here a few weeks back dropped 2 to 3 inches but came with VERY high winds. I went out after the storm passed and looked into the back of my pickup and the hail had "drifted' in the back end to within an inch or two of the TOP of my tailgate...
