Well, that was exciting.


Nope, not a rock.  A stone, but not a rock.



A hailstone!


We just had a brief (10-minute) but torrential rain with hail, most dime-size (~1.0 cm) and smaller, but the one I picked up was almost quarter-sized (2.0 cm).


There was too much rain and reflection on the front yard, but I did get one shot of the front garden area to show how much hail there was.



All the white specks are hail.
