We have had quite a spate of weather here on the Front Range in Colorado. Everyday for the past five have seen Tornadoes within 20 miles of Denver. And the hail we saw this past weekend was the biggest I have ever seen.
The above picture was taken 45 minutes after this hail fell. The orange ball is a ping pong ball to give you some perspective on the size of the hail. The biggest of the hail was significantly bigger than a golf ball and it sounded like gun shots were going off as it hit our house.
When we took the attached video of the tornado that ended up ripping up Southland's Mall just 1 mile from our house, we had no idea that there would be so many tornadoes around that it seemed like everyone had video.
This 45 second video is of the tornado that came within a few hundred yards of our house. It actually turned directly at our house and as you can imagine, we headed for the basement. There is audio also so turn up your speakers. The comments are almost entirely about the hail, not the funnel cloud. Imagine that; we have a funnel cloud 1/4 mile from our house and we were more impressed with the hail.
