My last nephew to do so is about to graduate high school so the wife and I are flying up to attend next week. A month ago the water heater decided to give up the ghost and started leaking. So that's where most of our tax refund money went unfortunatly. Well along come golf ball size hail yesterday! And for some reason I've kept full coverage on my Chevy Blazer that I use for work and astronomy/camping trips. So I says to the wifey, "honey the money I get from the insurance is going for that new scope". And she agrees!! I just Love hail storms!!! :rainbow:

The price I pay is not saying anything when she buys stuff!! A small price to pay I guess.

I had hail ding my work car. The insurance payout paid for a very nice home computer back in the day when they were very expensive in the mid 90s. The dings didn't look bad to me and the windows were all intact LOL. It was good to have that Pentium Pro workstation class machine for me and the kids got early exposure to computing. Now computers are dirt cheap to build.
