Oh…its just a hailstorm….
Working a little more on the Hales genealogy and came across a fascinating tidbit of information when geting sources for the town of Bovina, Mississippi:
We all know that some of the strongest thunderstorms can provide large hail, sometimes even softball size, but on this day in May, the hailstorm was so bad, ice chunks fell from the sky, with one of them having encased a six by eight inch gopher tortoise! By the way, Bovina, MS is where the movie Mississippi Burning was filmed.
