It's almost spring, it's Oklahoma, it's insurance adjuster time. A couple of Super Cells went through last night. I had enough golf ball size hail last night to pummel my van and crack the windshield. A tornado went through the town I grew up in and the one I went to school in. (Yes, I grew up in the sticks where the town didn't have enough people to warrant a high school.) A storm chaser ran over downed power lines and made it out safe. Places north-east of here got it a lot worse. I hope everybody is safe out there.

We just got heck of a lot of rain overnight in So. Wis. It just poured and now we're getting blow dried.
The wind is rediculous.

And my Uncle in Phoenix got a couple of inches of snow. Is there any justice?

I'm glad I went for the low deductible. Almost everyone in my town has heavy hail damage to vehicles and homes. I have holes in my siding, a broken window, and it reduced my dryer vent cover to just the flap hanging from one hinge. The yard is pock marked where the hail stones penetrated the ground. If you lay down and look at it horizontally it looks like a miniature version of Paschendale during the Great War. Which consequently I just finished reading a book on.
