Was at Menards getting some stuff, when I started hearing the weirdest noise, like a million midgets were tap dancing on the roof. It took a few moments before I made the connection that it was hail.

And oy, what hail.

And there sat Nookie, getting pelted hard with smacks between marble and golf-ball sizes. We watched the hail build up to a couple of inches deep in the parking lot, and the wind ripping leaves and branches off of trees.

Nookie got dinged pretty hard. Nothing I can do but file an insurance claim, but the whole left side, hood and roof look like a teenager's face. I don't know what this means; I have a $500 deductible and the damage is way beyond that.

Crap!

I'm guessing you weren't counting on rough nookie.

If it helps, my car was chipped up by road debris as I was driving it home from the dealership (oh, 10 years ago now). Fucking road construction.

Man, I'm so sorry to hear this!

The house got hit by the the par 4 of the gods, too, but we'd managed to get the cars under cover by then. (Also got to see a leader cloud extend from some rotation towards the ground, too...fun!) We look like we made it out ok...but hearing this makes me feel all manner of bad.

I'm so sorry, man.

On the bright side (yes, there is a bright side), she's way worth repairing. Hybrids are only going up in value. Not only that, but per a recent study reported on NPR, Hybrids are the new sexy car to own. (No, I'm not kidding.)

Keep us posted. :(

Oh, MARMOT! I'm so sorry to hear that!

Doesn't the $500 deductible mean that's all you have to pay? Insurance has to pay the rest of it. That's what it's there for.

At least you can still drive it until the fixin' happens. (Trying to see the bright side.)
