Large hailstones in Sydney Australia

At two o’clock this afternoon here in Sydney we had quite a violent hailstorm that produced very large hailstones.

In all my life I have never seen such a large hailstones.

When I’d heard descriptions of hailstones as large as golf balls in the past, I always thought they were exaggerations.  Some of the hail we had this afternoon was much larger than golf balls.  As a matter of fact some of them were approaching the size of baseballs.  Our neighbour Sandra in the picture below is not looking too pleased because her car wasn’t undercover and is now covered in dents.
