Hail Salad

Hail Salad

Even small hail can shred vegetation, but the hailstones shown here were mostly innocent of the crime.  In this case, much bigger hail (12 inches) also contributed to the deed, but floated away in a shallow street flood.  Smaller hail still accumulated as the water subsided, intermingling in elm leaves that mostly had fallen already.   You can find the specific tree that lost these leaves by pounding the GPS coordinates below into your favorite satellite-mapping browser.
