A Texas woman has become an internet sensation for her description of a hail storm in Texas last week.

Michelle Clark of Brookshire, TX described the storm to NBC affiliate KPRC-TV.

The reporter found a personality as strong as the storm itself.

"Soon as I posted on my Facebook it's a kapooyah, kapooyah and boy that hail just came in. I looked out, I opened my door and looked out my door and it hit me in the head, I took off running I ran to my restroom and called my momma so see if she was all right,” explained Clark, “We had a hail party at two o'clock this morning, everybody was outside. Man, those chunkers was big, size of a quarter, dog gone. They were big, they were hitting hard too, man. Look at this, here in Brookshire, Texas. Man, it's like snowing in March. "

That video - and numerous remixes of it - have received thousands of views on the internet in the last week although the spelling has been up for debate.


At least four different hashtags have been used on Twitter relating to the viral video.
