It just came right out of the blue. I was watching tv and all of a sudden I heaed a thump,then another,then a whole series of thumps. I looked outside and saw hail bouncing all over the yard,the street and driveway. It didn't last long,but it was pretty scary for the few minutes it came. Luckily,no tornados warnings were issued as was my second guess. It was both exciting and scary to watch at the same time.
