Default It's May in Oklahoma again

And that means weather! Let's review:

May 2010: A whole bunch of hail
May 2011: Tornado!

This year, it's hail again! There's less of it than two years ago, but these hailstones are quite a bit bigger. Look at them bouncing off the lawn! A couple of windows were broken on the house (you can see one in the video), and my car's rear window was shattered.

Can't wait to see what 2013 will bring. Or this evening, for that matter. Apparently today's chance of severe weather is higher than yesterday's. Guess I'll find out soon enough...

Other than to anything made out of glass, is it any dangerous?

Yeah, you definitely wouldn't want to catch one of them on the head. They leave nice little dents in your car as well.

Impressive as always, but this year I can relaunch with a series of earthquakes that don't want to stop

We actually had earthquakes here late last year. I'd never felt one before, and that was quite interesting.

A couple of years ago we had a hailstorm here that left many many cars covered in dents all over. The damage was large enough that pretty much every insurance company just said they would right off the cars, since the bodywork damage being repaired would cost more then just paying people to buy new cars. So glad we have an undercover garage.

Kinda wish I still lived up North so I could show you the fun weather we get up there. Nothing beats a 40 degree day being interrupted by a massive storm.
