These pillows are actually the bottoms of air circulations that are 
taking frozen water droplets back up to collect more water, freeze some 
more and grow into hail stones that will eventually fall to earth.  The 
core of these circulations often shift from horizontal to vertical and 
form tornados.   When they do, the hail falls.   This is why hail is 
often a sign of emerging tornados.

Oh-uh.   Looks like we have a weather geek duel here.  I stand by my claim
that they are mammatus because he said it was "after my storm", so a big
honking cumulonimbus is probably nearby.

because he said it was "after my storm",....
It's all objective.  before the storm..... after the storm... it all depends on which side of the cloud formation you are standing on.

      I did not read, you are right if it is after the storm, if the 
storm was coming, the hail would be forming.  I grew up in Oklahoma and 
the hail pillows were always a warning to head for the storm cellar.

Today we were out on the lake fishing, and about noon one of my friends 
mom called.
She and her husband had just got to Oklahoma along I-40 heading to Ohio 
in their fifth-wheel from AZ..
They had seen a couple of trucks blown over and luckily decided to stop 
in time.
Said the weather was nasty, but not to worry.
Enjoying hot sunny weather today, here in LHC.
