    Luckily the tornados missed us, but we got smacked with a big hailstorm this afternoon. C&C welcome although this was more of a holy crap snapshot then anything else ;)

    Thanks everybody - we're all safe and sound. Plenty of bottled water, candles, etc in case we get hit again, but damn those storms are spooky.

    Didn't everyone tell me to move to Atlanta because the weather was so nice???

    One more pic showing the storm in action.. Taken safely from inside the house of course ;)

    Yep we got that last July here in Michigan. Just my luck, my freshly painted '97 Firebird was parked outside in it and had taken the insurance off it. Argrggrgrghhhh! It cut dime sized holes in the fresh paint and cracked some of my glass. Oh yeah you know that was a rough time for me.

    Plus, my fiancees mom's Explorer that I borrowed as a DD with only 150,000 on the clock was totalled out by the insurance company.

    My neighbors saturn looked like swiss cheese after that hailstorm. I'll post pics when I can find them.

    My poor bird and Explorer... RIP explorer. However the bird will live on $4000 later :(
