This morning around 5:30 AM my family and I were awakened by a pounding
noise. It sounded like hail. I got out of bed and turned on the light
for the back deck and saw some pretty good sized ones. Hail in February!
The event lasted about five minutes and I took the photos in my backyard
and front yard about 3 hours later. It appears as though the cold ground
preserved them. I am located on the SE side of Des Moines, called the
Scandia-Magnolia area. I would be interested in knowing if this was
tracked by radar and if someone could make a graphic of it's path.
