Spring Hail Storm

A very intense hail storm visited Louisville, Kentucky on Saturday evening April 28, 2012. The downpour lasted about 5 minutes of maybe a 30 minute storm. Hail was sized to pea size to half dollar size. I saw quite a few quarter size pieces.  When the downpour died down I retrieved a number of specimens and placed them in the freezer.  Did not find any damage to house or vehicles which was lucky!
