Aww Hail

Well guess who's 2 month old truck just got hail damage..
Yeah mine...
We were actually fortunate. Appears we were on the edge of the really big stuff. Largest I saw were several of golf ball size. No window damage to either car, just a few dings in hood and roof that I can see so far. Many people got very significant damage just a mile away.
Still sux....

hail damage

wow,
sorry you had bad weather. here in louisiana, for once I'm glad I'm in
the south region & not in the north. these series of storms has been
really rough for many.... just a small thought, dent-less repair should
be the way to go....

That really does suck. I know we were supposed to get some severe weather the other night and just brought home our new Excursion. My husband and I spent 3 hours frantically rearranging the garage so we could pull The Beast in. Of course, no severe weather, but I feel for you.

Yeah, we're probably going the dent repair route. It's not terrible but just knowing it's there eats me up.

I hope you keep that stuff over there on your side of the line.

Just down I-20 we're still trying to recover from last weeks flash floods. We got so much water that our river ran backwards. Don't need any hail to go with it.

That really bites! I wonder how the new aluminum 150s hold up?? LOL Living in Colorado, hail is a common occurrence here in the spring. I wouldn't own an aluminum bodied vehicle just for that reason.

We had some white stuff last night and this morning too-snow. I'd rather have snow than hail. Sorry for you.

Nope, no way to put up a shelter of any type. This just hit so quick we had no time to react. and at 4 am
