Hail stones, July 2016 – not quite as big as the golf ball.

– Hail Alley, or Hailstorm Alley, is a corridor that stretches across west-central Alberta. It reaches as far north as Lacombe and as far south as High River.
– The City of Calgary is regarded as the hailstorm capital of Canada, with more than half of the country’s severe weather insurance claims ‘hailing’ from here (according to Western Direct Insurance.)
