there is an thunderstorm watch in effect again.. they are calling for LARGE hail now.

http://www.crh.noaa.gov/ifps/MapClick.php?CityName=Madison&state=WI&site=MKX

We never used to get hail like this.. what the hell is happening around here?

According to the State Farm agency there were so many claims filed today that they can't find enough adjustors to set up drive thru service.. I'm currently on a waiting list and have 2 claims filed.

It depends. Having lived just outside of metro Milwaukee most of my life I hardly ever saw hail. It seems like the areas outside of Milwaukee in all directions get hit with severe weather more often. The Madison area and surrounding counties seem to get tornadoes (and the other bad stuff) with relative frequency where Milwaukee has seen maybe two or three in my 30 years. Now that I'm living in farm country Im seeing more severe weather than I remember.

We're under a storm watch right now, as a matter of fact, and I can hear the thunder out the window.

I had some hit me SHO last year and a little hit my SVT a few weeks ago. I'd say maybe 1 every 2-3 years normally. Pretty rare to see hail get big enough to do damage. I've seen some dime sized hail hit my cars and not do anything. If it gets nickle to quarter size watch out.

once it was over I went outside.. All 3 vehicles(including the 2CSVTs)have about 100+ hail dents (each !!!)

Get this.. the hail was so big and nasty that it actually broke all of our outside flood lamps and put a golf sized hole right thru the fiberglassed in mesh on my Evo hood.. I glanced thru the hole at my engine bay and attempted to see if the fiberglass was cracked but couldn't see good enough with my flashlight.. Also noticed that my washer nozzles were missing.. WTF!

Mark... you get it too again?

I want to cry... but at least each CSVT is covered and has a 100.00 comp deductible.. unfortunately the truck has liability only




thats crap, im sorry to hear about that.... If we get their hail, I hope my car gets totaled... Ill get more in insurance then I paid for the car
