    Default Wairarapa hail

    Here's a small clip of the hail storm we had in the Wairarapa today, for anyone that's interested.

    It's pretty low quality, but you get the idea.

    Yeah quite big for around here, though it doesn't compare to the golf ball sized hail we had a few years back. Caused a lot of damage, especially at car dealerships.

    Not very large but lots of it. I was in Colorado years ago and experienced golf ball size hail that did millions of dollars of damage to cars - now THAT was a hail storm and I was lucky to be indoors.

    Did not know Photobucket did video - thanks.
