Hail in MN today

I have never seen this much hail before - if I have I was a child and don't remember it. A half hour ago it was coming down in sheets and the ground was solid white! Since it has started melting rather quickly I snuck out in the rain and took a few pictures right now before it's all gone. There was so much everywhere - I wish I had thought to capture it while it was happening - but I was having too much fun watching Andy be excited over it. His autism definitely shows when he is excited.
I'm sure this hail did some damage - I hope my plants are established enough that they bounce back. It's still raining too much to really check much for damage yet.

So sorry to hear about your hail. I hope your plants bounce back! One year we had hail in July and it left my cucumber leaves full of holes, but they recovered nicely and bore lots of fruit. Hope that encourages you!
