    Everything is worse in OTHER places. Everyone should be glad we live HERE instead.

    Wow, I've seen golfball sized ones on a single occasion, just a few of them mixed in with normal pea-sized hail, but nothing like these.

    I lost a roof and a car to hail larger than golfball size. But nothing like that. Wow.
