Calgary Man Ventures Into Crazy Hail Storm For The Best Reason


As anyone who's witnessed an Alberta hail storm knows, you'd have to be awfully brave to face the elements without wearing some heavy-duty protective wear.

But this kind Calgary man found the most heartwarming reason to do so, running out into a fierce storm Tuesday, wearing nothing more than a t-shirt and jeans.

Imgur user redpyl spotted the man from a distance, in the middle of a hail stone-covered road downtown.

When he got a bit closer to investigate, he saw the man holding something wrapped in a yellow towel.
