California Hail

Yesterday, despite the temperature never dropping below 50 degrees, hail pounded down on us California sissies here in Oakland. I took a picture and movie. The picture shows my street buddies who wave on the way by the shop a few times a week. They took refuge in the apartment building across the street until it let up. They saw me taking pictures and prompted me to take the one below. The movie came out well with the audio noise from the hail beating down. Twenty minutes after it hit the sun was out.

We see hail like that here in the south some times. It comes from way up high. Pretty weird when it happens.

Oakland was covered for a time in white crystals. As you mention, Charles, pretty weird when it happens.
