    Incredible! We may say that this is cool, but who in their right mind wants to see this in July???????

    1. fixxxer says:

      No one said we wanted this.

  7. Leslie says:

    WOW now a picture like that would bring “only in Michigan” to mind but I guess not.

  8. Barry in Zeeland says:

    Anyone know how much that dropped their temperatures? Seems like with that much ice on the ground it would really cool everything off.

    1. Bill Steffen says:

      I looked and found one weather station that only reports high/low that had a 42 degree temperature spread and a low of 38….but I don’t know if that was from hail or just a mountain location that can get big daily temperature swings.

  9. Lacie says:

    This is no joke I’m from Michigan but live in New Mexico now and they got 2 feet of hail and if you go to KOB 4 you can see more video and pictures.

    Why does the media always have to exaggerate?
    It doesn’t look like anywhere near 2 feet.

    Maybe the heap where it was plowed but that isn’t what fell.

    Ok so it’s an unusually deep amount of hail for July.

    But exactly how deep was it really? 6,8, 10 inches? A foot?
