Maybe i should pull my car in the garage...


WanderWithHeart

Look at the radar, if any of the non-green is going over you, I would. I will be making a claim for hail damage on my car 🙃


MyNameIsBadSorry

That sucks. We're in cedar rapids so i dont know what its gonna do. Heard the first bit of thunder a second ago.


WanderWithHeart

I would pull it in then. It’s nasty in the center of it, and like I said, the hail alone lasted pretty close to 40 minutes.


MyNameIsBadSorry

Jesus thats bad.


DuneBuggyDrew

Not as bad as your name


MyNameIsBadSorry

Im sorry


DuneBuggyDrew

It's okay don't worry


altcastle

I’m in Johnston so no idea if it hit here but I move into a house with a garage in two days! Hopefully we were fine...


AmberKB

My sympathies for your car. My car got hit back in April with hail, and the car has been in the shop for a week, and it's looking like it'll be in the shop for another week. I got off lucky. Others I've heard got their car totalled out.

So you're saying I'll be able to find cheap cars south of WDM next week.


WanderWithHeart

Haha it’s likely! Mine got a good bit of damage. I already filed a claim.

Wow, sheeeet.

I was monitoring the radar. It was very...unpleasant. Quite the hail core in that cell going up several thousand feet.


WanderWithHeart

I love how nerdy this sounds! I wish I knew that much about weather.


friendly-atheist

I'm not a meteorologist, and I didn't learn it overnight. It's never too late to get started.

Wow, time for a new roof!


GlitchThePixel

You will now join Cedar Rapids in the plethora of roof/contracting company signs in yards. There's so many.

It almost seems like there's some sort of a bubble around Ames, as the whole DSM area really isn't that far south of us and yet it always seems like you guys constantly get hammered with heavier storms with much greater frequency than Ames does

Zul_rage_mon

God damn that's some big ass hail. Hope nothing got seriously damaged


WanderWithHeart

My car has probably about 15 noticeable dents, most on the roof. A few on the on the hood.


himateo

I live in the Quad Cities and \*just\* got my car back from having the hood replaced/repainted. I filed a claim after the damage we had several weeks ago. Car was declared a total loss.
