First the lightning hit close by, close enough for us to hear the actual bang instead of the delayed report.
Then the water came down as a vicious mist. You couldn't see the individual raindrops. Just a buncha mist, but it was blowing hard down the street.
Then came the hail. Hail! We were just talking about hail yesterday. What common object were these hailstones the size of? Peas. Small hail! All hail the small hail!
Then it just turned to a regular thunderstorm. Well, that's no longer very exciting, is it?

That HAIL was wild! I was thinking Pea sized, from the official TORRO scale. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hail#Size_scale
FYI - we should not talk about large bizarre weather occurrences again if they're going to happen two days later. *shudder*
I'm jealous. Up here we only got a short rain shower. *feels cheated of pyrotechnics*
the flooding is sort of exciting.
I saw pictures on the weather channel up here of people shoveling pea-sized hail. It looked like they were shoveling fishtank gravel.
i lust after your thunderstorm.
