Littleton, Colorado got a taste of winter as a blast of wintry rain and hail hit the city on Thursday.

The hail storm pounded parts of the city, dropping 6 inches of hail on one street and flooding the area with up to 4 feet of water.

According to KPLCTV, kids were excited to get some snow in the middle of the summer.

"I'm excited. It's fun in snow," one child reportedly said.

Adults, on the other hand, weren't as pleased with the storm.

Bryndon Jackson, who was driving when the storm struck, said he got stuck in a flash flood and was buried in hail.

"All of a sudden my car just started getting washed away. Water flying up over the hood coming up to my windshield," he said. "It's freaky, it's weird."
