The biggest actual measurement I heard was 1.5", and that was at the Skywarn net control station (you could hear the hail in the background when N8WX was transmitting).
No, unfortunately I didn't get a close up of the hale stones, or measure them. What hit us was definitely smaller then a golf ball, the only thing I can think to compare them to (unscientifically...sorry) was grape, or pebble size. The wind and the hail also de-leafed our trees which are still green. It's hard to make them out in the photos but there ground is covered by just as many leaves as it is ice.rdale said:What?
Nice hail pics! Any zooms on a hailstone for size estimation?
Ha whatever, I'm at Hamilton and Johnstown Rd and we saw nothing, but closer to Broad and Taylor Station we saw pea sized. Thats about it. Don't know about west of us, but the storm lost a lot by the time it got to Gahanna, or at least missed us by a tad.jscott02 said:I heard that, as well as on WTVN I heard a caller report "baseball" sized hail in Gahanna.....that one seemed a bit extreme to me, but who knows.
