  1. They reported a brief touchdown just south of the airport and 3 inches of hail on the runways. I didn't see a warning box for the airport, but i guess the corner of the box was in Denver county….barely

  2. Englewood CO at 2130 got nickel sized hail and a big push of water that lasted about 10 minutes. my patio has 2 inches of standing water precautions taken, no damages to precious plants in the garden. Hostas do not like Hail. oh HAIL NO
