Colorado Hailstorm Video

A Typical Colorado Summer Hailstorm

It hailed today, August 8, 2013, so I figured it was a good time to show you a part of Colorado that you might not learn about from the guidebooks - that is, a genuine Colorado hailstorm.

We get hail each summer. This was the second hailstorm in the past few weeks, and probably the last for the summer. Both times it was pea-sized hail, which is a good thing. I've been in hail storms where the hail is much bigger hail. It can damage roofs and cars. I once ran outside in hail to bring a friend's car into her garage, and I can tell you, it stings. Better than going out afterwards and seeing dents in the hood and roof, though.

No accompanying music to this video - I actually find the sound of the hail somewhat relaxing and hypnotic and prefer to just listen to it.
