2 foot hail

The eastern New Mexico town of Santa Rosa will begin the holiday weekend with a white Independence Day.
According to this report from ABQjournal.com, nearly 2 feet of hail fell in parts of the city about 60 miles west of Tucumcari on Interstate 40, some of which was golf ball size and did some damage to roofs, skylights and the like. Photos submitted to AGN Media also show that the hail backed up I-40 for a decent distance.
More from ABQjournal.com: "A National Weather Service meteorologist, who had just spoken with the Guadalupe County emergency manager, said he received no reports of injuries. ... Storms of that type are common in the New Mexico eastern plains, meteorologist Clay Anderson said, and they often can dump a lot of big hail in uninhabited areas"

DON'T YOU KNOW THIS WOULD RUIN A TOMATO PATCH?

I think they raise pinto beans all over there. I guess it would be refried?
