We love to boast about our extreme weather here, but the Great Plains states have some pretty scary stuff, too. Just last week an almost-two-pound hailstone was captured in South Dakota.
The damage is proof that it wasn't a typical South Dakota thunderstorm. Holes were punched through the top of buildings, and Les Scott will never forget what it sounded like.
"A guy throwing bricks at the house and many of them and it was scary," Scott said.

Read all here. Heavy hail is about the scariest weather I've encountered ... had an apartment totaled in Austin when big hail knocked out glass French doors and water from heavy rain poured in the place. I remember another a couple years later that left half the cars in Austin looking like someone had gone over them with ball-peen hammers.
