Not a very good image, I'm afraid, but I only had my camera phone handy. My older daughter and I were just heading out the door to walk to the library when the sky opened and hail began to fall!
We have a Mountain Ash tree in front of our unit, and the hail stripped quite a few of the ripening berries. We did end up walking to the library after the hail stopped (though it was still pouring) and, while the hail was quickly swept away by the downpoar, the sidewalks were littered with leaves and twigs. Sadly, we also passed a dead pigeon on the the street, killed by the hail.
Here's a video I took with my phone as well.
Another photo of the hail here, plus some of the flooding we saw while we were out and about.
