Default White spots on tomato plants (Pics)

Anyone know what these white spots are on my tomato plant stems and leaves? I have never had this before and all 23 plants seem to be affected. It developed in the last week. Weather has been generally dry with a thunderstorm maybe once a week and the plants are quite productive so far.

Very strange. I'm sure you would have mentioned a hail storm, but the stems looked damaged like that after a storm here. Many recovered. Following ...

I have one that has those spots, but not on the stems. I often wonder if we are being experimented on?

That looks like text book hail damage to me.

Ah ha! Yes we did have hail about a week ago! I never thought of that. Thanks so much, I was worried they had some new kind of disease.
