Been there...

It's hard to drive once the cracks are everywhere in the windshield but the polymer coat remains so together they scatter most of the light....

Wow. Didn’t get a thing north of 635. Funny how this stuff is sometimes localized.

Just on the western outer edge of it today. Had thunder, wind and only a light spray of drizzle. Such a teaser this whole week of rain potential but you folks who got the damaging hail—sorry to hear.

So that is why you see hail damage repair businesses around Texas. We did not have those in Kalifornia.

Every so often we get one of these.

Every car on my street got beat up, 3” holes in the hatchbacks rear windshield (if it still had one) and front windshields cracked and smashed.

I figure it is a warning for all those new blue state “immigrants.” They can get on the phone and tell all there friends “back home” how awful it is here and forget about moving here.

On the other hand, when the hail and the rain stopped all my neighbors were out looking at their beat up cars.

Conversation broke out, next thing you know a couple of cases of beer appear on the lawn and everybody is standing out in a couple of the front yards having a party.

Texas, eh?

Sweet.

A friend of mine lives in North Dallas and had two sky lights...key word is had...She said the hailstones were as big as softballs and were wickedly spiked. Her car was beaten to a pulp.

I was in Colorado Springs last week and my husbands truck was hit bad. USAA Ins comes tomorrow to assess the damage. The storm hit near the mall and the hail there was to the top of the car. They said it was a 100 year storm. Crazy.

Yep, DFW gets some freaky hail storms. I remember the one that tore through Arlington in the mid-80’s with softball sized icebergs (where most of the auto dealers have located). It looked like someone stood on top of the cars and blasted away with a 10ga shotgun and 00 buckshot. There was an outdoor concert at the Starplex. Don't know how no one was killed.

Since last year’s drought there was proof of global warming, is this now proof that global warming has ended?

I had a travel trailer parked on some property halfway between Houston and Dallas. We had a heavy hailstorm pass through one December day, raining stones the size of softballs. The ground was as pock-marked as the moon. One stone passed through the roof! Overall, beat to hell.
