Station Name: Golden 9.4 WNW
Date: 9/12/2009 3:23 PM
Submitted 7/29/2010 2:03 PM
Taken at registered location: True
Notes: There are approximately 70,000 tiny (< 1mm indentations on the hail pad. These are real indentations, concave downward, not a "print through" of the texture of the Styrofoam backing of the hail pad. Some of the smallest indentations may be caused by very hard hailstones breaking up before impact, but I cannot conceive of any mechanism for such a phenomenon. This report was delayed 11 days because I am still recovering from a hard drive failure that appears to have happened because of a thunderstorm coincident with the hail on 9/12/09.
