And by Hy-vee in Clinton Parkway at 12:57am.

Is there a tornado coming?

A downpour of small hail in Western Lawrence. It was so loud approaching that I could hear the hail falling a good mile away. No rain. No wind. Very little lightning. Just a lot of ice. I've never witnessed anything quite like it.
