Rain, hail and snow — Cheyenne has seen it all recently and the city’s storm drains had had their fill Monday, May 27 when local truck driver Cody Lee Foster took this photo on the corner of East Lincolnway and Seymour Avenue.

“Due to our recent rain and hail storms … it was a constant rain and the storm sewers couldn’t keep up with the water falling,” Foster said. He estimated the water on the sidewalk to be nearly a foot deep.

Hail in his part of town the day before had been pea-sized, Foster said. Residents of other parts of the city posted photos to social media of hail the size of softballs. The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reported softball-sized hail struck the eastern side of Cheyenne on Sunday evening, damaging vehicles in a perennial spring boon for the windshield repair industry.
