    About 3 years ago, I went to New Mexico Tech to visit their campus. The guide around campus was shocking! A couple days prior there are are snow storm that came through. We saw broken glass on the facilities, some sky lights were broken, the ceramic shingles on roofs were broken. Just as in the video, there were cracked and broken windshields, the hoods of the cars were all damaged.

    NMT is located in Socorro, NM, 30 miles south of Albuquerque, NM. I was surprised this happen in NM.:eek:

    The storm the produced that the other day was pretty nasty. There were repots of it producing grapefruit size hail in Strawn, TX.
    Back in 93 there was a real bad hail storm that hit Ft, Worth during May Fest. My neighbor and his at the time got both of their arms broken trying to protect his head from hail. His black fox body mustang looked terrible.

    we got nailed on good friday with a hell of a hail storm. I had to pick up my little girl from daycare and on hte way there my truck got hammered. The largest we had was a little bigger than a golf ball and it left about 3 dz dents across my hood and roof. It even dented the top a pillars some. Going for an estimate next week......damn
