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.

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later

      Lets say you have 1.5 ah batteries now and you drilled one and a half holes per battery. Unless that ice was 50' thick, have dull blades and your auger is 8, or bigger that's not a drill you want to put more money into.  So give us some info on your auger and how many in lbs of torque is your drill?
