Hail - damn, such a scary prognosis for the well being of our SSR's. I have record of several SSR's destroyed from hail damage
Accident - you have less than a second to contemplate
Hail - well crap - sometimes have hours to contemplate the possibilities
I was at a show up the Coquihalla, perfect weather going to the show, perfect weather at the show, but heard nightmare stories of multi vehicle accidents, vehicles sliding everywhere on the Coq between us and home.
The Coq is a BC Rocky Mountain Highway that is unpredictable, but I thought it was fine that particular day, and it should have been.
As I heard the stories during the car meet I got more concerned - decided to leave a little early, but monitored the cloud movement as I swayed through the mountains.
Honestly, as I approached anything that looked ominous, I was looking for tree shelter on the side of the highway and was quite prepared to drive off a 4 lane freeway to protect Kate under trees.
We don't have a big hail problem, but it does scare the dickens out of us!
Stupid first time owner - not knowing the sequence, lid down - gate shut - I did gate shut, lid down for a bit
Elbow dimples occurred before I sorted it out - dent pullers sorted it out beautifully
