Awesome Hail Storm
« on: July 23, 2013, 10:53:55 PM »
Howdy,

What a weird summer for weather. First our flood, then tornado warnings and earlier tonight an awesome hail storm.

The gardens took a kicking. I hope the crops East of here were spared.

Never under-estimate Mother Nature. She can take care of herself, have no fear in that. We are but the fleas on the dog's back, compared to the power of nature.

Mountainman.

I don't like hail it always wrecks the gardens and I am always worried about my car as it is never in the garage where it would be safe. As if you have not had enough of the weird weather already in your neck of the woods.
It may never happen. Best to be prepared just in case.

Maybe I need to buy a stainless steel umbrella, a very big house boat and wait for the next big wave to float away to somewhere sunny and warm. :-)

Well unless your name is Noah maybe we should just work on mitigation. Mother nature is always in charge and sometimes she deals us a bum hand. You sure have has your share of weird, once in 100 years, weather this year. Not much  sanguinity but statistically it scan only get better,

My name is not Noah, but I thinking it is time to become better friends with Captain Morgan. Fly the Jolly Rogers and sail the seas of blue. Just got a call from a neighbour, tornado touched down just North of here. Gotta go. Later.

Nope the neighbour is good, just happened to be closer to the touchdown area and called a warning.

Anyhow, back home again. Safe & Sound.

Getting lots of bugout practice this summer, LOL.

The mitigation comment is something we've been talking about ourselves.  We built a new home recently but were not allowed to use hardi-board siding because of the developers rules.  We've already decided that when the first hail storm whacks our siding, we're going to take the insurance money and upgrade to the concrete board.  Wish we could have rolled it into the mortgage, but it is the best we can do now.

It would also help if our neighbours had a fire.

Dang! Put the matches away........Dang!!!

Yes, we all want to see your new place with the cement, fire-proof siding, but..............:-)

Hope your other improvements are not being interfered with by the developer or by-laws. How are those raised garden beds doing this year??

Cheers,

Mountainman.
