    Hail in Egypt


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     KathyHannus of Maadi, Egypt, shot video of rain and hail pelting down on her street this evening. 'The hail started out of nowhere. It rarely rains here. It's been a year and a few months since the last rain (October 2009),' she said.
    - zdan, CNN iReport producer

    It doesn't rain very often in Cairo, Egypt....let alone hail. But today it did both. Hail fell from the sky for about one minute in Maadi...bringing some much needed rain and a cool sight. Hail bouncing off of cars and patio chairs. It was only the size if a pea, but it forced some to run for cover.
