"Hail" mageddon in Brooklyn, New York

By Jason Samenow

* Cooler tomorrow: Full Forecast | Golf ball marks from heaven & hail *

Hail accumulates on the roads in the Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York.

The New York City region, blasted by two tornadoes last month and one in June, was raked by a cluster of severe thunderstorms last night. The storms, whose lightning delayed the Vikings-Jets game, produced accumulating hail of nearly an inch in parts of Brooklyn. Their torrential rain also produced flash flooding.

Gawker and Huffington Post have some great pics. For a nice recap of the event, check out the Wall Street Journal's Metropolis.

VIKINGS-Jets game! We Packers fans have no desire to be associated with Brett Favre these days.

I've never seen hail accumulations like this around here or growing up in western Wisconsin, but places like Cheyenne and Albuquerque sometimes get hail accumulations of up to a foot from individual hailstorms...they need to call out the snowplows to clear the roads.

Used to root for the Packers growing up in cheese I'm looking over my shoulder to fend off possible assassination attempts by disgruntled Packers fans...Go Redskins!!!
