OT: North Texas Hail Storm

So we had this massive hail storm in North Texas yesterday. No damage to the dome itself, but destroyed my thermometer. Also cracked windshields on both cars and destroyed the metal roof over our back porch. I'm sure there will be significant roof damage, too. Anyone else in NT get hit?

    At my home in Plano we weren't hit very hard - just 10 minutes of nickel to dime sized hail.  I'm thankful because I just put a new roof on the house last Spring.  However, some friends up in Allen got a lot more hail and will have to replace their roof.  From the radar and looking at the sky it appeared I was just south of the bad stuff.

    Hail Storms Suck. We had one last year and it only lasted about 15 minutes, but caused over $20,000 damage between the roof and two trucks. Good thing it happened before I got my BGE. My egg sits out in the elements.

    I'll bet the CGS got hit too. Maybe he will have a scratch and dent sale.

    I was driving when the second hail storm hit, some dings in my car but could be a lot worse. One skylight broken haven't heard the report on the roof yet. Pictures of our side yard and back porch when I got home.

    When our roof took a 20 minute beating from dime size hail a long time ago, I took photos of the piled up hail in our yard and around our house.  Then I called my insurance company in spite of the absence of visible damage.  I'm glad I did.  The adjuster came out and did a thorough inspection and concluded that the hail probably reduced the life of our shingles by at least 40% as evidenced by the large amount of aggregate in the gutters.  They were probably 25 year shingles, meaning they probably wouldn't last 15 years due to the damage.  I seem to recall that in the end they adjusted it to 60% because of damage to all the other houses in the area.  The adjuster told me that unless there were leaks he would just leave the roof in place for a few more years, then replace it.

    You guys might think about 'hidden damage' and 'accelerated wear-and-tear.'

    This is one of the dents from the hail. I didn't even think about roof damage until I went to State Farm to file claims on my vehicles and then the agent ask about my roof. I had no clue, so the adjuster came out to the house and totaled the roof. About $13,000 for the new roof. Glad the insurance rep ask me or I would of had a shorter roof life.

  • We were visiting my BIL in WY a couple of years ago and were pelted by some nasty hail stones. Our beater mini van looked like someone beat with a ballpein hammer. We still have the van, its white and named Titleist.

    That's what we call a Wyoming welcome. It's not always hail (seldom), but the weather is gonna get you. You always gotta be ready. I've seen snow as late as June 29th and then I have also have wore shorts in January.
