I looked out, I opened my door and looked out my door and it hit me in the head,” Clark told the camera. “We had a hail party at two o’clock this morning, everybody was outside. Man, those chunkers was big, size of a quarter, dog gone. They were big, they were hitting hard too, man. Look at this, here in Brookshire, Texas. Man, it’s like snowing in March.”
