    (painful) hail (1-2cm size) with lightening and thunder
    The hail is so thick on the ground it looks like snow
    The thunder is setting off car alarms.

    That is some kind of weird weather you have out there.

    I remember my dad telling the tale long ago of a July 4th he spent at Yellowstone and it had snowed overnight - and he was sleeping out with just a blanket under the stars. I think the year was 1932, but not sure.
