I have never wanted a storm to stop, myself.

Even though once i was swimming in a lake which is part of Lightning Lakes, was 35 Celsius and totally sunny. (95F) Suddenly black skies and lightning struck the lake 10 seconds after we got out and then golf-ball sized hail pelted us all, was hilarious with some people panicking and screaming, i had blood running down from all over but i never wanted it to stop, it was just too cool.

Just a glimpse of the power of nature.

If one of these days this world decides it no longer wants us here, it's pretty safe to say we're done for
Humanity: Just a paragraph in the Book of the Universe.

Thank you for sharing

This is a better weapon than some missiles, it comes out of the blue and disappears into the blue

That was seriously the most intense stuff i've seen in a long time.

That's the type of stuff that makes you make stool in your pants!

You just proved my point... you just showed videos that were 3 years apart... hence it doesn't happen very often.

I posted videos three years apart to show it happens every single year in Tornado Ally. How about get off your lazy backside and look into it yourself. You can find multiple videos every single year that show the same thing.

Thanks for the vid, really put the damage in perspective.. some of those cars made of fiberglass like material were just shredded. Couldn't imagine driving through that hail.. think of the poor bastards on motorcycles.

Hail really damages roofs too, even if it doesn't look like it, sometimes insurance companies will have an entire roof replaced because of "dents" caused by the hail, weakens the entire roof and lets water seep into crevasses.

My wife told me about this storm yesterday. We only live 60 miles form OKC and it was cloudy/rainy here but none of that hail, thank the stars...

We get our share of the wildness of nature here but that was absolutely wicked.

Apologies for using your post as a springboard for an off topic joke. It was insensitive of me to associate you with a joke that might offend.
The reference to HAARP has spurred an interest. I've seen it mentioned, but I haven't paid as much attention as I should.
Sally Kern very well could be a good and honest person, as could be the many muslims and gays (which her disowned son happens to be) who are the reason she's a household name. Depends entirely on the yardstick you use to judge them.
OK City's Gay Pride parade is on Sunday June 27. Not sure, but from what I gather on their webpage, it's been in June for over 20 years.

Watch these

And this

Now consider that this area is not at the OPPOSITE end of the country to where Cyclones and hurricanes occur - it is in fact the worlds worst Bush Fire location - Melbourne, Victoria Australia -

Here is the SAME AREA the previous year as temperatures pushed past 47 degrees Celsius - about 115 degrees F......


But during he summer 3 years earlier - it was snowing - which means below zero....

In 1999, Sydney experienced a supercell that tracked up the coast & then caused more than $1 BILLION damage in a very short time

I remember that storm mate. Mainly because the one fatality that was involved happened to be a friend of a friend of a guy I went to school with.

Rather hectic storm indeed!!!

Yes it would be like a classic war movie scene where the person tries to run to safety and get's blown apart.

Except when you are pounded into death I imagine your karma would be all paid off...

Wow I am happy I don't have a glass roof. Imagine that getting beaten by a storm like that. No thanks lol.

Thanks for the video

That wasn't a hail storm, the jacuzzi was just turned up too high.

After that Sydney hail storm I posted, hundreds, if not thousands of cars were written off due to hail damage, resulting in massive car insurance payouts.

Well, more than just a few people whose cars escaped hail damage decided they also wanted a new car..... in droves, they took to their cars with hammers & beat the crap out of them!

Guess what.....

The insurance Co's could tell the difference.....& moola!

"Please dear, just explain to me one more time..... exactly WHAT did you do to the car?"

Kind regards

Gah I hate amature shakey camera. This video offers no proof that it was coming from the sky, and not up from inside the pool.

Yes, I have a brother that is an insurance adjuster, it is very easy to tell the difference between a ball peen hammer and hail.

I am sure the people got charged with attempted fraud also.

We had some very intense hailstorms in Australia a few months back. Caused quite a lot of damage. No cars in our street were damaged too badly. Lots of broken house window, and plenty of large-sized holes in the ground, though.

Make sure you have a hard-hat nearby, they can be nasty.

ETA: At least this guy had a good sense of humour about the whole thing

Just think of a very rare and freek basketball sized hail. Wow.

One would be inclined to think that it's Nature's wrath, trying to say "Don't mess with me!"
