    the tree branches ping pong the hail around and break up terminal velocity. Instead of a 120mph fastball to the face, it's more like a 40 mph softball to the crotch. Still not something you want to happen.

                  We get some here once in a while but nothing like that -Jeez!

                  Save your old bed comforter and use it to throw on the car in case of a hail storm. It will break the fall and save the day. I dont go on any road trips with out a couple moving blankets in the trunk in case of this.

                    I think I might come up with something to at least put over the t-tops on the Mustang. They would probably be the most expensive part to replace by far as far as body parts go.

                    I picked up 14 lawn & leaf trash bags full of leaves and branches out of my front yard alone last night. What a mess.

                      That clean up didn't look like any fun at all.

                      We had some hail damage - but of course our insurance company wouldn't agree the house needed a roof for that reason - even though a dozen houses in the name neighborhood were getting new roofs replaced via insurance coverage - nope - not ours - new insurance company now - it was the only claim we'd ever made. I hate insurance companies for the most part. Hope you have good luck with yours.

                        A friend sent me a picture of hail they had in Oklahoma - size of grapefruit - I mentioned to him that the rain he used to suffer from doesn't sound so bad anymore (I'm nice, reminding him and all since he moved so his wife could get a better job)

                            The next windy day will blow into your neighbors yard.

                            I remember we were getting golf ball sized hail in Nebraska. I left my bike out in it. I ran out to get it with my football helmet and shoulder pads on. Sorta worked. Saved me from a concussion.
