I just got home from fishing in a hail storm. Quarter sized hail and I was nearly 2 miles from my truck, standing in a stream..

This is where I was, in the center of the purple. Lucky me.馃ぃ

A fly angler! I knew I liked you. Nothing like standing in running water with a 9' graphite lighting rod in your hand during a storm 馃ぃ

I had a similar experience with marble sized hail while fishing...not nearly quarter size. Hope you didn't get too many lumps.

@BizSuitStacy I love fly fishing. Been doing it for 50 years. That's why it took me so long to bolt. I wanted to keep fishing.
Yeah, there was lots of thunder and lightning too. 馃ぃ That's OK. A great way to die.

@NoThanksLeon I get it. I'm an avid fly angler myself. I started about 50 years ago, but only really embraced it the last 30 years.

Omg reminds me of the time I was stuck in a hail storm. It was bad but all I could do was laugh

@NoThanksLeon about 5 years ago my oldest daughter had a bright idea when we lived in town to walk to Walmart. It was a beautiful day in her defense.

As we were checking out...the sky got really dark. It was supposed to be a 20 minute walk and we thought we could make it. Out of nowhere we got hit with quarter size hail. We had to stop at the local school for cover but we were black and blue afterwards.

Moral of the story...i check the weather before I go anywhere 馃槀

@LilPrincess Yeah, I just today noticed some black & blue marks on my arms.
