Default Wow! Crazy hail and lightning storm!

I was at work today cutting grass and out of no where it started hailing like crazy! I was just cutting away and I had my earplugs on plus the sound of the grass trimmer made it so i couldnt really hear it at first then i started feeling the ice balls hitting my neck. I was only wearing a t-shirt and when the hail started coming down really hard I had to run back to my work truck because they felt like paintballs hitting me! I had welts all over my arms and neck! lol

Then there were puddles everywhere on the drive home and people were hitting them going about 80 km/h and the water was splashing up probably 30 feet into the air. I hit this one puddle going 60 km/h and it slowed my truck down to 40 km/h. haha

Glad to be at home now
