Well, I acan say I did not practice last night much:(. We had a huge hail strom and it busted 4 of our windows along with everyone else in the area. We only had one that was busted all the way through, but ther were many places that were not that lucky, some lost every window and all their vinyl siding :(. The temp dropped about 20 degrees when the hail hit, and it lasted about 15 min. I can say I never want to be in a storm like this one agian. Just glad that no one was hurt.

At about 10:30 we finally got most of the inside of the place we are staying cleaned up. I told my wife I was going out to shoot my bow, she just laughed, but I serious. Target by the yard light and bright pins work great for a latenight practice session :D

Truck got it pretty bad. Looks like a golf ball on the hood and roof. Maybe that is beacuse the hail was golf ball sized. I went to the insurance today and they did not even look at it. There are so many people that had damage that it is going to be one big claim for them. Maybe now I can finally paint the truck CAMO :D

Thanks GRIV, I will let everyone here know who to send the cleanup and rebuilding bill to :D. The Cafe next door lost about $30000 in building costs :(, and they just got done remodling this spring. I feel bad for them.

Ouch, that looks bad. All in all, it's a good thing everyone is ok. At least you didn't leave your bow outside!

Yea, kinda familiar with the big summer snow. Mom & Dad were visisting a couple of years back and we got baseball sized hail that covered everything. Smashed the hell out of their new car. Some friends got softball sized hail through their roofs into the living room. Whooo baby, that was bad. When they took it to the dealer back in N.C. to get it fixed, the whole dealership stopped everything to come check out the damage. I got my second new roof in 3 years on that one.

Bummer man!

GRIV, put down the MOJO bag! Don't you think you've done enough? STEP AWAY FROM THE MOJO AND PUT YOUR HANDS UP!



WOW! That looks nasty LeEarl! Hope you made it through o.k. The last town that GRIV hit wasn't so lucky.

Try a place that does paintless dent repair. You'd be amazed. Much better than pulling, puttying & repainting. My new truck got nailed in a hail storm when it was five days old. Dent wizard came and worked their magic on the truck and now you can't tell there was ever anything wrong at all. Not even a trace. I can't recommend them enough.
