Snow in Newport…..what???

Posted: 04/11/2011 by goodie in HQ, pics

I awoke at 5:30am on Saturday morning to a load roar of what sounded like bb’s hitting my roof and windows. It was hailing; not any normal hail but a powerful down pour of hail. So much that within minutes the patio and sand outside was covered in pea sized ice.  It was a crazy and noisy sight to witness.  As the sun lifted up over 56st you could see the hail atop the sand……so much so that it appeared to be a slight dusting of snow.  Around 6:15 one of my buddies came by to surf and he said as he walked across the sand it crunched under his feet as if it where snow. (Good morning to forget your booties) There was hail on our patio until about 8am and stories flew all Saturday about it snowing in Newport.

Here are some pics to prove it.
