(June 16) -- A freak storm stunned residents of northern New Jersey on Monday, dumping so much hail that authorities had to fire up snow plows to clear roads, the Bergen Record reported.

I found this hail storm of interest and thought maybe others would too. I used to live in New Jersey and don't remember ever having weather of this severity. If you watch the video you will see that it is obviously very cold as well and that is the part that is really surprising to me.

Are other places back east having this happen as well? Was NYC icy cold that day?

I don't know about East, but here in the South (way south
) in New Zealand, we had a freak hail storm that you can read about here. You can see a pic of someone snowboarding on the beach in an area called the Bay of Plenty. This is one of the warmest areas of NZ, has a temperate/sub tropical climate, and generally has mild winters, with only a handfull of frosts. This storm occured in Autumn (Fall) when a freezing southerly flow blasted up the country. Great for the ski fields


The last couple of Winters have been exceptionally cold here in NZ, and this winter has been the coldest in a long time so far.

That was a good sized storm there. You're starting winter down there, here it's just a few days before our summer, so seeing those people in Jersey with cold vapors coming from their mouths was strange to me.

I personally like storms and hail. Not crazy about tornadoes though.
