Central Texas Hail

So it was about midnight or so and the wife and I are watching some TV before going to bed. We had seen some warning boxes on the local news, but when you live in an apartment, there not much you can do for your cars.

Well long story short, it hailed like I've never seen.

I manage the student housing apartments for the seminary I go to, and in the morning I counted 51 windows in our building were broken by the storm. Insurance estimates well over $5k just to replace windows!

My Ranger sustained a broken passenger side mirror and a number of dents. Check out some of the pics I snapped in the morning.

Here's one of the many broken windows

Check out this Prius

Here's my busted mirror

And here's what did the damage

Wow...We had a hail storm here in NH a year ago 99% of the cars were totaled, dealerships selling cars wicked cheap because the damage is almost unfixable. Dents in the tops of fenders by teh hood line, Dents in the A pillars etc.

Howd your truck fair?
