  1. well, I guess you don't believe me when I say I have picked up and held hail that size.
  2. I have witnessed that size hail in Oklahoma City twice. Both times my car was covered but several of my neighbors lost their windows in their cars and one of those took out our roof.... we had two layers of asphalt shingles over one layer of cedar shakes and it knocked holes completely through the roof. And yes if you were caught outside it could kill you. Oklahoma weather is not for the faint of heart. In tornado weather it really can rain cats and dogs, frogs and fish.... I saw it rain cows one time at my uncle's dairy farm and he tells me that he saw it rain tractors one time. Texas is bad too, I saw it raining 18 wheelers one time and a school bus.... So called mother nature can sometimes be a real uhhhhh oops I can't say that here LoL.
  3. Ran across this last night.... wonderful sights when one gets up early. One morning on the way to Hawaii.
  4. on a little more serious note:
  5. there you go taking these funnies serious again
  6. There was once a group of women studying the book of Malachi in the Old Testament. As they were studying chapter three, they came across verse three, which says: “He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver.” This verse puzzled the women, and they wondered what this statement meant about the character and nature of God. One of the women offered to find out about the process of refining silver and get back to the group at their next Bible study. That week this woman called up a silversmith and made an appointment to watch him at work. She didn’t mention anything about the reason for her interest beyond her curiosity about the process of refining silver. As she watched the silversmith, he held a piece of silver over the fire and let it heat up. He explained that in refining silver, one needed to hold the silver in the middle of the fire where the flames were hottest as to burn away all the impurities. The woman thought about God holding us in such a hot spot – then she thought again about the verse, that he sits as a refiner and purifier of silver. She asked the silversmith if it was true that he had to sit there in front of the fire the whole time the silver was being refined. The man answered “Yes”, and explained that he not only had to sit there holding the silver, but he had to keep his eyes on the silver the entire time it was in the fire. If the silver was left even a moment too long in the flames, it would be damaged. The woman was silent for a moment. Then she asked the silversmith, “How do you know when the silver is fully refined?” He smiled at her and answered, “Oh, that’s easy. When I see my image in it.”
