Just came home from work, walked into the house as it started to rain, next thing I know the wind is blowing like crazy and things are thumping around. Look out back and the pool looks like the ocean in a bad storm. Have a deck full of hail, most of them are quarter size around and thick. Go out and look at truck, hood, roof and bed rails are toast no broken glass, Wifes Exployder is in the same shape and the old 98 Sonama took a lickin and it is beat to crap. :jester:

I'll post some pictures tommrow.

Same thing happened to our 2012 Grand Cherokee about a month ago. It's been in the body shop fo 2 weeks now. The hail got the roof, hood, and most of the right side. $4500.00 in damage. We hadn't even had the Jeep 3 weeks! I was lucky and had my truck parked at work. No damage to it :)

Hate to hear that. I had so many incidents over the years that having a garage would have prevented, I decided I would spend the money/work on building garage space for vehicles before I ever bought another new/nice vehicle. So far it has worked but a couple of times it was close and you can always be caught out somewhere in a storm.

Yeah the plans were to get a carport or garage built it just never happened (yet) after this it may be the first thing done even before fixing the truck. Its hard to get good pictures but here is one that must have been bigger than a golf ball!! :jester:0142.jpg

Got estimate from insurance company yesterday, $12,000 if they can pop the dents out of the roof. They did not tell me how much if they need to replace the roof!! Only good thing that I see happening out of this is I loose that big black useless hood marker, I talked to body shop guy today asking him about it and he said he thinks he can get around it for me. :jester:
