Thunder, heavy rain and even hail hit many areas of Henan province at around 9 p.m. yesterday night. The unforeseen spheres of solid ice raining down from the sky were of particular concern to residents, especially those fond of their car’s windshield.
The size of the hail balls hitting Henan was reported to be about “as big as an egg,” likely the size of the golf ball-sized hail that ravaged Beijing in July of last year.
Cars parked on the side of the road were helplessly being battered by the nearly biblical amount of hail coming down.
So, quick-thinking car owners pulled the quilts off their beds and out of their closets to save their automobiles from certain destruction.
It’s always handy to have an extra quilt in the car, folks!
