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

      If you chase panfish late ice, make sure you get a sled with high sides. My Otter Pro has already made several water crossings, while keeping my gear high and dry.

        You just have to remove any and all the bird seed at least 10 minutes before the warden arrives and you're legal.    Near as we could tell the little guy got spooked by something and when he barreled through the yard the clearest path seemed to be the lower deck due to our loaded sleds n cars n stuff.  The most daylight was coming through the railing.  Instead of jumping the railing he lowered his head to part the spindles like saplings but these didn't move!    If you look at the spindle above hind quarter you can see the mark where his face planted.  There was a tuft of hair stuck to it that matched what was missing by his eye.   I was out there when it happened.  I didn't see him do it but heard the crash and the bellar and thought someone fell.  I hustled up there calling to see if someone needed help and found the deer kicking and taking his last breaths.  The others in the house heard it too and came to the door.  We were all pretty stunned.     Thats the best I can come up with.  I hope you can buy it!

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.
