This Is What Happens When Grapefruit-Sized Hail Plummets From The Sky

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.
