It is very fortunate for me to see with my own eyes first time what is this hailstorm looks like..Say 15 minutes this sudden hailstorm lashed the city leaving the people stunned at this sight.This hailstorm poured hailstones as if someone throwing stones at you. I was sitting inside my office and one of our collegues informed us about this and immediately we all went outside to see it..wow..amazing i collected some of the stones and enjoyed for sometime..some of my friends even took pictures of this hailstones in thier mobile cam.. Really people enjoyed it and ate hailstone. Has any one of you seen this type of hailstorm? share your moments of joy...

I saw hailstorm when I was a kid. I was so happy to see hailstorm and even played with it, but I didn't eat it. It is really exciting to see hailstorm. I can understand how you feel. But you know, too much hailstorm can be very harmful to people and to those houses that are not very solid at all. I hope that no one got hurt in the hailstorm yesterday in your area.

You are lucky enough to experienced the happening.I've only heard about it through my grandma's description about a hailstorm she witnessed several years back.

Subathra, Wow!! That's an amazing experience indeed! I remember having experienced one such storms as a child when I thought that snow was falling. It was probably (?) winter and I was not allowed to come out of the house. Later on when it stopped we experienced bitter cold that season. Thanks for sharing.
