    Well my Saturday is now totally screwed. One of the biggest Hail storms hit the ER a few moments ago.

    In my house,Smashed 19 windows, dented and smashed windscreens on two of our 11 month old bakkies, The IBR on the entertainment area is now ball penned. ADVdivers polo is trashed with broken windscreen and his house has numerous broken windows.

    My daughter Taryn's i35 is done with smashed windscreen etc.

    Now the sun is shining.

    We were in the middle of two tank moves. One of then Michael B's. Thank goodness this happened in between the two moves.

    Eish. Sorry to NJ:(

    I've been trying to get used to this phenomenon on the Highveld. Not used to it at all seeing that I'm from Durban and we never experience this so close to the coast.

    In the 4 months that I've been here, I've encountered about 4 hail storms. Not as bad as what you've encountered, but still enough to highten my excitement and stress levels at the same time:whistling:

    Without sounding rude, please post a pic or two of your ordeal.
