Holy heck, I think I bought a rock!

I bought a blue hubbard squash at the farm stand quite a while ago. I started to cut it for prep for tomorrow and it is VERY hard. I don't have a cleaver and I was banging it on the cutting board to get through it. Is this normal? Is my squash extremely under-ripe? I got through it but man it was tough!
