Default Raced a storm....

So yesterday my roommate and I were sitting outside on the couch in the yard doing homework when it started to rain. We raced to get the couch and stuff on the porch and got it all on rightbefore the hard rain started.

Unfortunately, 2 minutes after the hard rain came hail, 1/4" - 1/2"....

And I lost the race to cover my car....

the roof has a little bit of hail damage. About a dozen to two dozen little dents on the roof. The hood was under the tree and well, I have 4 trunks so that doesn't matter to me.

Saw the topic and thought you were talking about a Geo Storm. I was trying to figure out why you would post something like that when you have been here more than long enough to know its not allowed....

Hail storms suck and luckily I've never had a car in one bad enough to do any real damage. Hopefully it stays that way.
