should have taken a video instead but this hail just peppered like crazy for a good 5 minutes today. It was spectacular how it bounced off the eggs like they were combating it like troopers! Hail stones were a good half inch in diameter.


It piled up quickly!

    Hope all of your vehicles were garaged Ron. Time to get that roof inspected too.

    That just makes me cringe.

    No - we had just gotten home and our Capitva was still outside. There was no warning - even had just turned off the radio after listening to the weather report!
    I have since wiped the hood down and I see no signs of hail damage so hopefully the roof is ok. The buds on the trees took a real beating though and our decks are littered with broken buds.

    I was egging last April in a hailstorm like that. Insurance bought me a much needed new roof 2 months later!

    Wouldn't it melt?
    If it is worth doing, it is worth overdoing.

    Yes, smoking ice will melt it. That's why you put a pan or bowl underneath the ice and let it melt while smoking. Then you freeze that water into ice again and you have smoked ice.

    That is why I love this board.  That is genius, I would never have gotten enough smoke if I pulled before it melted.  Gonna try it in my scotch.

    Careful of you do that.  Depending who you talk to, you may (or may not) boil it all away   :wink:
