“spring showers bring the pretty flowers.”
everybody knows that!
in our state
spring brings what you see above.
do you see a golf ball lurking in there?
in the wee small hours of easter sunday morning . . .
some got that golf ball size.
in my city we got nickel and quarter size.
that does enough damage right there.
i had gone to bed with my wren house window open all the way.
it had been a beautiful day. and was not to be a really cold night.
at about 3 a.m.
i awoke to what sounded like machine guns.
i even thought it might break through the windows.
thank goodness for double glazed windows.
as it progressed . . . the big ones turned into lots of smaller ones.
the street looked like it was covered with snow.
but at least the car damaging size was over.
nope. i didn’t even go down later and look at my little car.
my insurance is with state farm.
the last super bad hail storm we had
was on may 29, 2012.
our whole city was devastated by it.
roofs. windows. siding. trees. cars. electricity lines and poles.
our storms always come with excessively high winds.
this hail storm was just a baby.
the quarter sized hail only lasted a little while.
soon it just turned all white with the tiny ice above.
and like snow . . . kinda pretty really.
but we need RAIN. RAIN ! !
that other one last year was a godzilla storm.
even included a microburst tornado with it.
there was terrible damage to the wee blink bonnie if you remember.
it sustained damage all over it. expensive!
so . . . if there ARE dents in the car from this one?
and i turn in another claim so soon? will my insurance go up?
probably. couldn’t blame them. really.
so . . .
maybe if the paint’s not damaged ~ which would cause rust ~
i’ll just live with the little dents.
after all. spring is just now here.
and in my state . . .
these are our spring skies. beautiful no?
and then sometimes
they result in this below . . .
til it hits the city. or the town. or the farm house.
so . . .
since spring has only begun.
and the dents are no doubt small.
think i’ll just thank my lucky stars
i’m not a home owner anymore.
i get to simply turn in a little
work order to the apt office to replace
my shredded screen! YAY!!!
and since so many of you are still doing this
when it should be spring where you are . . .
I AM NOT. MAKE THAT NOT! COMPLAINING!!!
til soon old bean. til soon.
hope your spring skies only bring showers!
we have a real life storm tracker living in our apts.
i won’t worry til he does. LOL.
