I'll bet even you veteran chasers have never seen hail like this:

I read about this in the newspaper on a recent trip to New Mexico, and
looked up the above link from the NWS ABQ web page. Ironically, I was
arriving on a plane in Albuquerque the day this happened, and may even
have seen this storm from the air. My wife and I did get a chase in the next day on an impressive HP supercell not too far west of where this occurred - wish I had known abou this event at the time.
