The hail storm that hit Chicago came in two waves, the first of which lasted a minute and a half. The second one lasted more like 8 minutes, which may not seem like a long time but felt like a half an hour. I posted this shit on my YouTube page and within a day the 2 vids got over 500 views. WeatherNation.Net contacted me and asked for permission to broadcast them in "various cities around the country" to which I naturally said "Sure, for $5000." They declined, so I relented and surrendered my copyrights to all content.
