Our very own resident journalist Adi brings you candid footage of the hail storm that hit Austin yesterday evening between 9-10pm CST.
The last time I encountered hail was in Summer 2010. Hail hit us hard (literally and figuratively) in the wilderness at about 12,000 feet as Kumar and I were trying to race towards Mt. Whitney’s peak at 14,500 feet. We couldn’t find a place to hid and save ourselves from the hail. Well, that is another story.
Yesterday’s hail storm was loud, but much less dramatic given that we were safe at home.
Here is how the 3 boys reacted to the hail storm:
Ari kept asking me the following questions: Why ice was falling from the sky? Could we taste the ice?
Adi grabbed the umbrella camera and went about shooting pictures and videos.
Kumar worried about what was going to happen to our cars that were parked outside.
