We got hit last nite, Mother nature

Jeep related because of the potential damage. Jeep was in the garage, but F150 in driveway. Busted windshield and body dimpled. Sky lite in master bath shattered. Roof shingles probably also shot.

Ice balls falling at terminal velocity.

Makes me glad I moved from VT to Va. I got pissed when dime sized hail ruined my old car. I guess the rumor is true, everything's bigger in Texas.

p.s. That's scarier than any of my avatars.

Screw that! We had a small earthquake last night (3.5 about 10 miles from me). I'll take the shaking earth any time.

So, does insurance cover all the damage?

That's some monster hail balls. I can't fathom a storm like that.

Having never been in a storm like that.

How long did it last for?

Does the hail start out small for a bit of time, then they get larger?

When it's hailing like that are all the balls coming down about the same size? If so, a person could get seriously injured.

Crazy

We had a 3.5 quake a week ago. Here, women call that their first big O.

Basically, the super thunderstorm is so powerful that the updrafts are strong enough to keep cycling the hail until it is so big and heavy it has to fall to the ground.

Not all will be giant like that, but as you can tell, the ones shown are all bigger than a golf ball...

I love people like you that are so much smarter than me. I love the info, but could care less about the outcome. Thank you.

Insurance auto and home does cover damages, less deductibles.

Hail is common in north Texas several times a year. Most times only marble size, which doesn't cause much damage. Some times even get lucky with little damage from golf ball size. Anything bigger, garuntees damage. This was close to tennis ball, but baseball or even soft ball has occurred. Balls are used to gauge size as ease to relate.

The hail generally only last 5-10 minutes, but can cover the ground, and we've even had total ground cover before. It's hard to explain the sound in the house as its failing, even the small stuff will freak you out, the large stuff last nite sounded like bricks hitting the house from all directions.

Most of the time, when it hails, all hail stones are close in size, from start to finish.

And, absolutely, a person can get killed, this stuff is rock hard and falling terminal speed.

OMG, that photo of your hail is frigging scary. That guy with the mattresses tied over his Jeep was smart, he obviously had had some hail damage before.

I love Texas but I'm glad I don't live there. My Texan dad used to scare the hell out of me as a young boy when he would tell me of things like massive hail storms, tornados, etc.

When you have a choice, buy American made.
