May Hail

Denver got some weather today -- hail between golf-ball and baseball size!

Here in Boulder we just got a minute or two of very small hail. After it seemed to be over we went for a walk and took pictures of the clouds out East.

As giant as that cloud looks in the picture above, it was probably 50% taller when we first set out! We had to walk a ways to get a good look at it. You can see the same cloud deflated a bit more in the left side of this panorama:

Later in the evening I saw this monster outside our front door:

It was getting dark out but the cloud was high enough to still get lit up by the sun.
