Record-Setting Hailstone

28 July 2010

Every once in a while I have to offer a crowd-pleaser that’s sure to impress the guys.  Today it’s worth sharing that a recent storm in my home state of South Dakota produced a two pound hailstone, expected to set a national record.  Found near the town of Vivian, it measures eight inches in diameter and a hefty eighteen inches in diameter.  We make ’em big here in SoDak.
