    Some of these developed flat spots on them because I had put them in the freezer until my camera battery could charge. I have lived in southern California for 34 years and in Houston for 2 years. In my entire life, I have never seen hailstones this large. We even had a Tornado warning early this morning.

    Those could hurt! Strange weather all over the earth. Here's a Texas size hail stone. I didn't measure them but they were pretty big. They beat the hell out of my van!

    That hail was in Dallas last May. I have since moved to an area of Costa Rica where it's around 70F year round. I don't think we get hail here. But you never know!
