Buddy of mine received some nasty hail damage. His garage windows were all busted up, and every tree in his yard was striped of its leaves. There were even a few dead birds laying in the yard! Shows what damage baseball size hail can do!

I know another guy lost the majority of his shingles.

Am I missing something here? I was playing softball in Corcoran last night at 7:30 and got home to Monticello at 9:30. Never a drop of rain in Corcoran or in Monticello. I have not watched the news or anything, where in Wright County did the storm go through? My house seems to miss all the hail storms, it would be nice to get a new roof and siding, although a pain to deal with insurance company I'm sure.

The storm came in through Annandale, passed just south of Buffalo (might have hit buffalo lake) and knocked up Montrose head on.

Trust me, you don't want to deal w/ the insurance company on it. I was hit pretty hard in Big Lake about 2 years ago, and the insurance company tried to cut every corner in the book to keep their cost down. I was unlucky enough to have the insurance company be able to find my old siding, so they would only replace the 2 walls that were damaged. After 7 years of sun-fading and weathering, I wasn't going for that, so I ended up footing the bill to do the rest of the house.

There are still 100's of houses in Big Lake with no work done yet because insurance companies want to play badmitton and use you as the birdie.

We got our house fixed after 13 months of dicker and dagger.

They ONLY want to replace whats bad, regardless if it would be functionable, reasonable, or look decent.

We started with hearing, "2 squares of shingles, 1 window, and 1 wall of siding, or $2,400; whichever you choose".

It ended with an entire new roof, all new soffits, all new facia, complete new siding, new windows all around, a new sliding patio door, and a can of beer.

$32,000 check from insurance later, and a couple contractors, and the house is as good as new.

      If a stream is non-navigable but has been meandered, the shoreland owners own to the thread (centerline) of the stream. If a lake or stream is non-navigable and not meandered, ownership of the bed is as indicated on individual property deeds    its sad that just a few bad apples can ruin it for the rest of us,

      That would be unfortunate if it was shut down. But I wouldn't blame the property owners if they did, as I wouldn't like my property getting trashed either. My oldest daughter, and son, both caught their first rainbow trout out of there 2 years ago, and it's always a must stop on our way to Grand Marais. How is it possible that the river itself is private property?

      For anyone that's interested, the docks were not in on the east side of Island as of Saturday. It was nice to see the lake a little higher than it normally is this time of year but the water was still way too cold for much crappie action - at least where I was fishing. Lots of logs and debris floating around in the middle of the lake so pay attention out there!

      thanks everyone for the input, we have decided to drive and take our own kayaks for the convenience. plus we can carry more tackle.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!
