    Hail in Aruba? I would not have expected that!

    Here are some more pics:

    I probably would have thought I had one too many if I saw hail! Sky in the pictures look pretty scary, especially if you were in a plane about to land.

    I think Act1966 left the island too soon! He missed out on all THAT excitement!

    Hail can be fun! As long as the pieces are small! LOL Once in a Blue Moon, we have hail in Texas:

    Just walked from Alhambra back to LaCabana (9pm)and there are still lakes all over. Downtown was under water according to our cab driver earlier this evening.

    Due to bad construction, the airport in Aruba had a "waterfall". There is a video at the link:

    The rain came too fast and furious for what the land and streets could handle.
    Aruba needs late night light rain every night for about a month to get things less dusty.
    I bet the kids in Aruba were mesmerized by seeing hail.
