A hailstone that recently fell on Hondo is now acknowledged as the largest ever recorded in Texas history.

On April 28th, a severe thunderstorm clobbered parts of Medina County, especially Castroville and Hondo. In May, the State Climate Extremes Committee confirmed that a Hondo hailstone was a record-breaker in Texas.

The chunk of ice weighed more than a pound, was nearly six-and-a-half-inches in diameter, and measured nearly 20-inches in circumference. Lucky it didn’t hit anybody.
