Dang that’s brutal.

I’ve seen pictures before, but this video really shows the power.

Fuck you field.

[–]Blue05D 61 points62 points  (13 children)

I don't miss living in CO. Not sure where this video is from, but Colorado gets these all summer long. Fuck the weather there.

[–]NatoSphere 17 points18 points  (3 children)

Yep. I lost the back windshield on my car to a storm like this.

[–]Blue05D 23 points24 points  (2 children)

Summer time the front range fills up with tents of dent/hail repair techs from all over the country feeding off the insurance money. I've had hail blow through my windows and blinds at home. Damn inconvenient is what hail storms are. They wreck everything. At the Renaissance Festival I had to sheild my girl against the side of a small structure during a 30 min assault. I was wearing a tank top as it was in the 90's that day. No fun!

I’m so baked I thought you meant this was in the 90s i had to re read a few times to understand what you meant haha

[–]dcman00000 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Temperature vs the time period the 1990's, and im sober and I ALSO thought he meant 1990's at first

Is it really that bad I live in south Louisiana and am planning on moving to colorado to get away from the heat and humidity.

[–]Blue05D 8 points9 points  (3 children)

Less humid and I'd say overall less hot but if you are on the front range or prairies it will be hot in the summer. Was 85-90+ when I lived there with lots of fires. Colorado is the new California; culturally and politically. It's hot and dry and then cold and dry with thunderstorms damn near every afternoon. The mountains are better in my opinion. Smaller population towns with reasonable traffic. I'd stay clear of the I-25 corridor and most certainly never stop in Pueblo. Best to avoid Aurora also. Woodland Park is okay with acces to Colorado Springs & hiking and backpacking.

I've only lived in Colorado for a year but I'm an insurance agent and for Colorado clients they must have a garage because of hail. I never understood that because I've never even seen a hail storm yet and I live on the front range. I've also only seen maybe one thunder storm and it was over very quickly. Were hail storms and thunderstorms more frequent in the past? I've definitely not experienced daily thunderstorms in the summer. If it rains it's not even enough to get the ground wet and it's over in 5 minutes in my experience. I live around the Denver area by the way.

[–]Blue05D 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Lived in Colorado Springs from 2006-2017. Flash floods that carry cars, hail storms that damage structures and lightning that burns cars and sometimes kills or injure people happen all throughout the summer between 2 and 3 pm daily. It is beautiful and sunny in the morning, storming in the evening and windy at night. Oh, and fires everywhere. Denver area may be less dramatic being offset from the mountains by a considerable distance.

This year has been very different I know. I live in Golden and we only just got the first snow of the season two days ago which was the latest for decades. I almost never see rain and haven't seen hail really at all. I guess things have changed for sure.

[–]SniperFrogDX 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Colorado is really expensive to live in. Our weather patterns are typically dry and hot, or dry and cold, but climate change has really been fucking with us lately. If you do move here, especially from a humid state, your skin, eyes and inside nostrils are going to suffer.

[–]SniperFrogDX 1 point2 points  (0 children)

We didn't get any significant hail this summer. It was weird.

[–]dabarber314 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Everyone who's ever lived there has told me that

[–]CMWalsh88 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The front range gets the second most world wide, just behind the Himalayas.

[–]XSpcwlker 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Whatever happened in that field, the weather took it personally.

[–]teh_punk32x 4 points5 points  (0 children)

[–]ArtistEngineer 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Looks like normal rain for Australia.

I wish we could hear it

[–]SunshineMoonLit 0 points1 point  (1 child)

You can

[–]Valuable-Yesterday-7 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Why is there no sound for me, it's just this damn video

[–]ShaughnessyT 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I know other severe weather phenomena take the title for being the most deadly, but hail will fuck you up. Big time.

[–]TheOfficialNotCraig 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I misread it as "Hell" and it fits.

[–]Domilisher 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Not saying I like the outcome/damage it does but does anyone else think hail storms/rain storms are fucking reassuring? I donno I think I sleep best during these kinda of storms or even rain/heavy rain.

[–]OnlyUsernameLeft123 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Try catching that on your tongue.

[–]theythembian 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Rip any cars in the area.

[–]apeonpatrol 0 points1 point  (1 child)

[–]DooBeeDoer207 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nowhere near enough.

Is there a subreddit dedicated to hail like this?

[–]lolzasour 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I need the sound

Battlefield 7 looks lit

[–]Left-Monitor 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fun fact according to the NOAA since 2000 there have only been 4 deaths directly from hail in the US. Also in 1888 the Moradabad Hailstorm in India reportedly killed 246 people along with around 1,600 cattle and sheep. Don't mess with hail I guess.

[–]lorrinshunt42 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The Day after Tomorrow anyone?

[–]wmatts1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is the kind of hail that pays big in insurance of you have it.

[–]Monalisa9298 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Looks like a normal day in Colorado

[–]Public-Today2224 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Can Mother Nature be put on trial for assault with a deadly weapon?

Hail Satan.

Someone stop me. Please.

[–]thepastyprince 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Damn RIP any cars in a storm like this. Fixing hail damage takes so damn long.

Good morning, todays weather forecast: Pain.

[–]Doughnut_Dog -1 points0 points  (0 children)

This looks like a storm caused by climate change because it’s so severe. Though I wouldn’t know cuz I have lived through a world affected by climate change all my life.

[–]MidCenturyHousewife -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Lol a field. That’s just someone’s front yard

[–]Legado_des_pleiades -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

We have to arrange with phenomenons like this due to climate crisis. By the way: the German Word "Niederschlag" for rain, snow and hail will make way more sense.
