Austin TX Hail Storm of the Century

...that's what the local media is treating it as, anyway.

Not astronomical, but...

When your weather Doppler looks like this...

















...expect to see hail as big as this.....

















Lots of smashed windscreens today! A big storm cell blew in from the North West this afternoon, bringing with it some tornado watches and heavy storms. I love rough weather!

The hail totally missed my place up on 183 and Burnett. I was expecting some white golf balls but didn't get any! Guess I'm lucky! Hope your roof and vehicles made it through.

How strange - we are not even 10 miles away from you at the most... Luckily I cleared out my garage recently and both our cars were nicely tucked away!

We just bought a house in Pflugerville on Willow Wood. We are not in town.
Did it miss there?

Anon - not sure about Pflugerville. I have a mate there but he said it wasn't quite as bad as what we had.
