Hail to the hail in Benicia, California

When I got home from work on Wednesday afternoon, the sky turned black, the temperature dropped from 46  to 38 degrees F. in about 3 minutes, and it sounded like someone dumped a bucket of gravel on my back deck when it started to hail.

Fortunately, my son Karl, the photographer, was there to record this chilly event.

Know what? Those pea-size bits of ice really sting when they hit you on the face. /Gary
