We just returned from Carlyle today and we dodged a bullet while we were there. Saturday night a major storm that produced hail in the 2 inch to 3 inch diameter size passed just south of our location. There was a lot of damage throughout the St. Louis Metro region. There is going to be a lot of work for roofers and body shops for the next six months.
A fellow RVíer who had left the campground for the day to help do some work on his sonís house in Granite City IL came back that night with a heavily damaged truck due to the hail. Itís hard to see all the damage in the photo because of the lighting when I took the photo. You can see the hole the hail punched in the arm supporting the driverís side mirror. He put tape on the windshield to keep it in place.
