Now THAT's a hail storm

This starts slowly, but stay with the video. From Sunday in Oklahoma City...

I was in a hail storm like this on a hot, humid day about 20 years ago in Lawrence, KS, only no swimming pool was in sight, and I was driving a car. I had to pull over to the side of the road because I couldn't see. The hail was so loud on the car roof that it sounded like I had been thrust inside a kettle drum. When the hail finally stopped, baseball-sized balls of white had piled up on my windshield. I opened the car door to a blast of cold air and stepped carefully out onto drifts of dirty, white ice balls.
