Glad you cleared that up, I thought it could've been a nickel. Nice hail.

Those are indeed somme whoppers.

When traveling to Lancaster, PA this past Summer, a cold front came in and first rain the mable sized hail, it sounded like a thousand kids shooting the car with rocks all at once - I was shock that only two small pings were in the hood and no glass issues.

We were there to see a play at the Millenium Theatre (a Xhristian based mega theatre (180 degree stage over 300 feet long) and the y have great musicals like NOAH and now IN THE BEGINNING - the creation of Earth, the animals and Adam and Eve - the fall from grace and the whole life of Adam until his death with 30+ children.

It stopped raining just as we parked the car in the lot ( now God in the Beginning of time, looks like Jesus, and Adam surely does look like the image of God - the two could pass for brothers) I told tracey as torential rains, so hard we couldn't see the windshielf wipers, stopped and clouds cleared, a small rainbow in the lower sky - I told Tracey that the HEADLINER STAR must have arrived - lol.

Check out there plays sometime - I think it is www.sightandsound.com Noah had hundreds of pairs of live and animatronic animals, In the beginning also, many animals, and what I'd image the garden of eden in 180 degrees would look - very cool.
