35 In Hawaii, there is one mountain where it rains about 350 days a year! Sometimes hard balls of ice fall from storm clouds. They are called hailstones. Most hail is small and round. But every once in a while, a hailstone can be as big as an orange. Or shaped like a star. And one time a hailstone fell with a turtle frozen inside! 37 Then there is the story of 1816.
