Yes, everything is bigger in Texas. Specifically the hail, which Storm chasers outside Stephenville discovered when chunks of ice the size of grapefruits fell out of the sky. Related: What are the insurance premiums for storm chasers?

The chasers in question are Spencer Basoco and Lawrence McEwen, who were covering a storm on Sunday when chunks of hail measuring up to six inches busted through the windshield, coating both guys in glass. They eventually found refuge under trees next to a building, although there’s no word on how long they were posted there and how much damage was done to their ride.
