6 inches of hail
August 6, 2008 - the day we arrived in Colorado Springs. We took the back way to our house-to-be at about 7PM and observed snow banks on either side of the road. My wife asked her favorite question, "How could you do this to me? Move me to a place where it snows in August?"
Turned out it was hail that had been plowed to clear the road. Typically hail enough to plow happens once or twice a summer here in Colorado. Daughter's car just got the the famous dented roof and hood from hail last week while she was at work.
There are very good reasons for bikers, hikers, and climbers to get down from Colorado mountain peaks before noon - and 10AM is even safer.
Have seen similar amounts of hail once in a while around Lake Tahoe.
