About a half hour ago,I laid down for a short late nap.
All of a suden I heard some large bangs on the roof. To my horror,hail was the cause.Some as large as baseballs.Never in all my years have I seen hail so big. I haven't ventured outside yet,to see how the car faired.We are under a weather warning for another 51/2 hours.Sure hope the hail is done.

I've seen that, once. The vehicles did not fare well.

Winds were not an issue this time. They were actually pretty light.

I never saw hail that big, that could put some real dents in vehicles. I would hate to be outside and get hit on the head with hail the size of baseballs.


I got myself a seniors' GPS.
Not only does it tell me how to get to my destination,
it tells me why I wanted to go there.

Looks like I lucked out--only one roof dent that a quick evaluation revealed. I THINK THE TREE CLOSE TO THE CAR DIVERTED A LOT OF the hail.
News reporting golf ball sized hail,but we were hit with the bigger boys.

Get ready for the roofing company phone calls and fliers in your door.
We had a hail storm last June come through. Lot of roofs replaced.
Finally got mine done 2 weeks ago. Got to be to late in the year so I
told them to wait till this spring.

Check where the rain gutters come out, and if there is pebbles from the roof's shingles = claim time

Seen hail as big as softballs once. Sounded like someone was dropping bowling balls on the roof. Stood there in my shop and watched both of my welding trucks get beat to a pulp. Had a neighbor about a half mile away, got into his combine cab, as some of them were coming through the roof on his machine shed. Must have been lighter ga roofing than my old shop building! Sure tears stuff up, hope I never see it again!

Several years ago I had hail that size hit a rental property. When the insurance adjuster came out he reported the the dimples in the roof were "consistent with hammer blows".

I wonder what that idiot is doing for a living today.

I was able to watch the one I went through from my covered front porch. Those bigguns were coming down so hard a fast that the river below looked like the whole surface was froth jumping three foot into the air. The sound was unbelievable just a constant roar it was hitting so fast. But it quit just as fast, couldn't have been but a minute or two.

We got bigger than a pea, smaller than a marble here in Faribault. I didn't sustain any damage.

Crazy,.
Wildlife/livestock gotta take a whooping?


swampgas chili and schmidt beer makes for a deadly combo

You have to remember that 1 out of 3 Democratic Voters is just as dumb as the other two.

Saw golf ball size hail once that lasted for just a couple of minutes. My secretary at the time was driving through the worst of it a couple of miles from our work. Her car looked like somebody spent 20 minutes going over the whole car with a hammer. I bet she had 150 quarter size dents.

The insurance company set her up with a company that pulled out every single dent without ever needing any body filler or painting. Looked good as new when they were done.
