The quick story is that my wife, our friend and I went to Handel's before they closed after watching fireworks. It started to trickle rain then a downpour then it started hailing pea-sized hail. My wife gave me her phone to videotape. The hail went from pea-sized to 50-Cent piece sized rather quickly. Then it started blowing sideways. That's when we pleaded the people at Handel's to let us in. They did right before the worst bit started. In the end there was 6" of hail in some spots and it looked like it just snowed.
