elmo

(no subject)

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.
