HAIL in Miami


Recommended Posts

I'll never forget the only time I remember hail in miami. I was probably 8 years old or so and we had just bought a tent. The second I finished putting it up in the back yard, it started hailing. Lets just say I never got to use the tent because it had about 30 holes in it.

I don't exactly live in Miami, but it hails every now and then in Coral Springs, it's not earth shattering.

Well, it sure scared the sh*t out of me.


One moment I'm sitting around in my apartment, it's hot, and there isn't a drop of rain outside. The next moment I hear a very loud, continuous, machine gun spray of hail against my windows. Outside, there's wind, zero visibility, and traffic chaos.


The whole praying my windows don't break thing really gave me flashbacks to Wilma.




Channel 10 has a pretty crappy video up:

Last summer I was working at Blockbuster in Plantation. I was supposed to get off shift, and I started hearing this immense pounding...looked outside and saw things smashing against the sidewalk and cars. I thought for sure we were under attack by the Eskimos.
