Default Ice falling (hail storm) in Bangalore

Guys

Just went to Cunningham road. Its a hailstorm [ Is it the right term ] in here. Ice is falling in small pebbles format. Was concerned about the vehicles parked outside. Did anyone catch the cubes ?

No such things happening here in Mysore Road -- RV Engg Colllege.

PS: Shouldn't this be in the ICE section??

Actually not untill the cubes get inside the car.

No such thing in Airport Road.

Weather God has a sense of humour alright, dry days due to elections and he peppers us with ice cubes.

And that will cost a lots of FREEZER loads to get onto the road buddy

On the serious note, how much effect does the hailstorm have on our beauties. I am worried about dents being formed on the roof of the cars

This was on the cards given the excessive heat we have been experiencing for the 10 odd days. Am glad it's finally raining and I am quite happy as I am harvesting the rain water. Am really enjoying it.

Hailstones after so many years in Bangalore - AFAIK.

Just heavy drizzles in Bangalore East - near ORR.
