A dramatic and noisy graupel storm pounded the area mid-afternoon on Tuesday. Graupel are tiny, perfect ice balls. Even after they fall, they keep their shape.

Hail is a lot easier to say - but this isn't hail. Here's the wikipedia article: graupel

The photo was taken of Jo's pretty front yard and street.

Correction: original story misidentified the location.
