That's so scary! I've never seen hail like that!

Side Note - valkeryie I am right in that area of the Southwest and that's really nothing for this time of year. It happens all the time. Spring is very windy here and dust happens.

I'm around the same area and it hasn't been as windy as years before, it's been getting hotter sooner though. The first snowstorm of the year here happened the first day of spring, that was odd.

I caught a show on History the other night talking about weather weapons. The guy said there was no need for them because the US is hit by 10,000 severe thunderstorms, 5000 tornados, and 1000 floods every year.

Sounds like it was a pretty unusual storm system (cue conspiracy theories - anything unsual must be eveidence of weather wars

It was forecast on Thursday though

Coincidently, we've had unconfirmned reports of giant hail and a possible small tornado in Manchester, England, overnight - also in conjunction with a cold front.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — In the second wave of violent weather to hit the state in less than a week, severe thunderstorms and tornadoes tore off roofs, overturned cars and left 11 people dead.

While families of Sunday's tornado victims in the western counties of Dyer and Gibson planned funerals for this weekend, many residents of Sumner County began picking through newly flattened homes and mangled cars.

I did one time down in Arkansas, thanks for info that this is perfectly normal for that area.

As to the rest of the ATS family, how did the rest of us fair. Hope everyone in the south is just fine.

CNN) -- One day after storms killed 11 people in Tennessee, the Southeast got more severe weather Saturday as tornadoes touched down from Mississippi into western and northern Georgia, where warning sirens were blaring.

The initial edge of the storm, which was heading toward the Carolinas, was pushing into Atlanta, which began experiencing high winds by 4 a.m. Doppler radar identified tornadoes on the ground in four surrounding counties -- Polk, Bartow, Paulding and Cherokee, according to Galen Crader in CNN's Weather Center

Prayers to all in the affected areas.
