Most of the hail in the BSL area was golfball size although there were some baseball sized chunks.

My boss's plane took 25,000$ in damage.

I'm thinking there could be trees down with the big winds we had as well.

I'd be calling your locals up here to check in on your property.

I heard that Bridge Rd got hit pretty bad. Looks like a warzone w/ trees down, roofs damaged. Any skylights are likely toast.

I'm down on Flowage and it (supposedly) never got any bigger than pea-sized down by us. I'm keeping my fingers crossed though (we need a new roof!). Checking it this weekend

my girlfriends parents have a cabin on big sandy and they got baseball sized hail that completely shattered their lawn furniture, but no broken windows thankfully!

Thanks for the additional info boys! Think all that ice will cool down the bite?? wink.gif

Did it knock the Buffalo Chips out of the rice???

Have they started harvesting???

Well BBG I hope it works out for you.

I was worrying about my old roof for about 8 years, hoping it would hold until a hail storm would hit...all it did was go all around me! Most of my friends got theirs replaced 100%. frown.gif

I finally had to shell out the dough, but it was well worth it. smile.gif

Only now I worry every time a storm is coming within twenty miles!!! grin.gif

      Well I am going out fishing today if ya want to tag along.

      They should not be in the deep holes anymore now.   The should be moving to that mid range water.   I saw one surface by the 22 bridge as i was driving by.    It was in shallow water.   Don

      it is open from the 22 access to the 22 bridge and i assume the channel down stream to cold spring.   Don

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......
