Funny how everyone says their just hydration balls but he clearly states they rained down during a hail storm. I guess everything is just so easily explained these days.
No he does not, he says that he noticed them on the ground after a short hailstone fall...

I find it odd that they put the story out without even running chemical tests on it. It just wreaks of another small town wanting 15 minutes of fame to put them on the map.

US-Patent-6315213 – Method of Modifying Weather
A method for artificially modifying the weather by seeding rain clouds of a storm with suitable cross-linked aqueous polymer. The polymer is dispersed into the cloud and the wind of the storm agitates the mixture, causing the polymer to absorb the rain. This reaction forms a gelatinous substance which precipitate the surface below. Thus, diminishing the clouds ability to rain.
