Video shows giant hailstones pelting Germany

The Munich region of Germany was hammered by hailstones the size of tennis balls earlier this week.
The huge chunks of ice, which measured up to six centimeters in diameter, pelted homes and gardens while torrential downpours flooded the streets, causing widespread disruption.

Several people, including a 7-year-old boy, were reportedly injured by the falling ice.

The below video, which is one of several uploaded on to social media of the extreme weather, shows the sheer mayhem wrought by the gargantuan hailstones as they rained down on a residential garden.

The spectacle of the ice hitting the pond in the middle of the frame is particularly intense.

"I've never experienced anything like it before," said local man Roberto De Angelis.

Some years ago a friend of mine bought a used car damaged by hail. It was a small Renault Idontknow, fully equipped A/C, navigation, automatic gearbox and so on. The standard used price for the 2 year old car with a mileage of ca.15kkm was at 13K, he got it for 3350 including a 1 year OEM guaranty. Ok, it looks like a golf ball but thats the cheapest option to buy a car thats technically 100% ok and will do its job for at least 10 years.

That happens in New Mexico about once every few years. I recall a July in Albuquerque (I think it was 2002) when it was especially intense. The hail actually accumulated, and for an hour or so, it looked like it had snowed. In July. My whole neighborhood was covered, the trees were shredded, cars were covered in micro-dents, and an eerie mist rose over the scene as it all melted/evaporated in the summer heat. On the upside, it did go from about 90 F down to about 65 F in a few minutes, lol.

Although I know it is extremely dangerous I find this kind of extreme weather utterly fascinating. Probably because where I live in the UK the weather is very mundane...
