A hailstorm hit Colorado around 6 p.m. on Thursday night dumping six inches of the white stuff on an August day! The hailstorm gave Littleton, Colorado a quick and short-lived blast of winter weather, much to the delight of some of Colorado's youngest citizens, according to KPLC-TV Channel 7 on Aug. 23.
The hail was mixed in with rain causing what would be known as a wintery mix, if it wasn't August. Up to four feet of flooding occurred in some areas last night. So much for dodging mosquitos on a summer evening, folks in these parts were dodging hail stones.
The pictures coming out of Littleton make it look like January instead of August. This was a plow worthy event. The hail came down for just a matter of a few minutes, but the aftermath of the storm is what the kids in the area seemed to enjoy.
Bryndon Jackson was literally caught up in this freak summer storm. He tells KPLC TV about his drive home on Thursday:
"All of a sudden my car just started getting washed away. Water flying up over the hood coming up to my windshield."
After Jackson got stuck in a flash flood, he then got buried in hail. He felt mother nature's fury two-fold yesterday. What he said about the August storm, "It's freaky, it's weird," and no doubt others in the area felt the same way.
