Been through a bad hail storm, so I know what it's about! I had to replace siding and windows.

We were watching the weather in the waiting room here at the hospital and they were showing the tornadoes in Kentucky. I had to check to make sure that my sister and you were not in the path. She is in Glascow.

I think Glasgow fared decent.  I just drove 3/4 mile south of me and hail damage non existent.  A bit over a mile north and none either, but we sure got pulverized!

Looks not to be nearly as rough your way.  Another 2 strong storm cells heading in my direction, so we may get more rough weather yet.

I didn't have my radar zoomed out far enough to see your area.  Yes, it does look ugly there!  Stay safe, and hopefully it'll pass without incident.

Well, we do have house damage we didn't see due to leaves all over the siding. This morning while leaving for blood work I saw the whole north side is busted up badly. Stopped at my insurance company to start a claim. $1000 deductible. Dang!

We had a bunch of small trees and limbs down, but nothing serious out my way. Looked pretty bad for a while, though!

More damage found.  My skylight roofing in my tractor shed is chock full of holes.  My new house windows have chips & cracks in their frames, and the aluminum around the windows is pecked full of dents.  I've had company, so not had time to check all the insured buildings, nor have I been on the roofs to check for damage.  It's going way over the grand deductible.....way over.

That really sucks. But, at least you have insurance, I just found out a neighbor a few miles away had a tree land on a customers tractor. Since he is operating as an unofficial side business, he gets to eat the damage. Crushed the fuel tank and hood on a Ford 3000.

Sorry to hear of the damage. Daniel! Wait till you come home and have to clean the leaves out of you living room! That's when it's bad!

Yes, that would be much worse indeed.  And even worse, so many unfortunate folks find their homes scattered among the leaves!  I'm quite fortunate to only have busted siding and some holes in skylight roofing.  Teresa is kinda bummed, but after these last few years, this isn't getting me that upset at all really.
