Getting sh*t sone!

Meeting with an issuance adjuster to give me a quote on this hail damage. Gotta love TX. At least she'll be pretty again. Now if only I could get them to pay for the front and back bumper upgrades...

How big was the hail? We just had some the other day here in northern NJ; first time in years. My wife didn't believe me until I ran out on the porch, scooped up half a handfull of BB-sized stones and dropped it down her shirt. Nothing big enough to cause any damage.

Uh, the hail to the cars, the hail to her chest, she kicking your butt for the freeze-out or her chest to the world?

It was golf ball size. I was able to get off the highway and under a gas station. But is was bad, ppl were having their windows busted out. I was quoted at $4000 in damages still. Thank god for good insurance!

I'm a little north of you up in Sussex county way up past the top of Rt 15. Strange things happen up here weatherwise.
