Pretty dramatic stuff, for around here at least. But check out this hail video from Oklahoma City, OK from Sunday (be sure to watch about two minutes in):

Now - as the guy shooting video aptly stated -- "That's insane."

Mute the second video unless you want to hear a constant "OH MY GOD" and "THAT'S INSANE" for the first 3:30.

Wow. That IS insane. I don't know if I would have had any other words to describe that either.
