    I believe most everyone has seen some hail, thankfully usually not bigger than pea sized. Only once did we get hail damage on a car, never anything structural, much less a window.

    This past weekend the storm warnings in SE PA variously referred to pennies, golf balls, and (unless I am confusing this with SE US) tennis balls.

    If I had a dollar for every time I got a severe Thunderstorm alert here so far this year and we actually had one I would have a dollar. If I got a dollar for each alert then I would have a lot.

    Enjoy it, Janis. As you get Luddie into a safe place or comforted, get dressed, and help clean up.

    A decade ago in Dallas, every vehicle, roof, and many windows in my neighborhood were destroyed due to hail.

    Insurance adjustors had been packing up to go home after months of all the ice storm damage claims, then had to stay well into the summer.

    Here’s a copy of the National Weather Service hail size chart (in the article). The reason they use these items to describe the sizes is to provide an easily understood common description.

    Thunderstorms – even severe ones – don’t worry me as much as the warnings of strong, gusty winds. We have very old trees nearby. If I wanted a treehouse, I’d freakin’ BUILD one!

    I’m an awful person. Before reading the comments I thought she was enjoying seeing Arlo run around naked.

    Yesterday we had pea hail, grapple, fluffy snow and rain … in the space of an hour.

    We’re getting freezing rain tomorrow. Power outages and downed trees for sure.

    When the wind’s howling and the lightning is flashing and the thunder is blasting, open the window as much as you dare, get nude, and hop into bed with someone you love. It’s great.

    Hail often accompanies tornadoes.

    We were in a hail storm once. We could find no shelter, so we sat in our car while the hail made it look like a golf ball. Just cosmetic, but it still needed to be fixed.

    My first job after university was in the underwriting department of an insurance company. We had a hail damage claim submitted by a church. This damage fell under the classification “an act of God”. At the time, I thought, of all the buildings God could have gone after, this was an odd choice.

    Someone was asking a day or so ago where Arlo and Janis live; I would say this puts them in the South from Arkansas to the coast.. I’m still guessing the Carolinas

    Enjoy hail? Even the teensiest bit? HECK NO! You must have never observed what it can do to your roof.

    I put the do not disturb function on my iPhone to avoid getting blasted out if bed. But I don’t live in a place where we get tornadoes and golf sized hail. Thunder and high winds, yes, but we usually get plenty of warning it’s coming.

    Most sins are enjoyable for a time.

    Possibly ALL sins. I haven’t checked every last one.

    Janis “warned” Arlo about the possibility of severe weather, but what was Arlo SUPPOSED to do about it?

    Specific warnings about tornados, flash floods and the like call for specific responses, but she received a “severe weather” warning – what is the logical response to THAT once you’re in bed? How did she Want Arlo to respond – and, more to the point – what could Arlo have done that SHE couldn’t have done just as ably?

    Hail, even very sizable hail, seldom breaks window glass – the trajectory is wrong – gardens and roofs are damaged or destroyed – automobiles and house sidings are damaged – but you can’t DO anything about it while it’s happening, so again I ask, what did Janis expect Arlo to DO?

    Many years ago (80s, IIRC) in Arlington, TX, we had a very bad hailstorm. The city had just received a whole fleet of brand new police cars, and they were sitting in the big lot, not yet handed out to officers. Dents all over, making the cars look like golf balls, and broken windows.

    My wife enjoys thunderstorms. Opens the windows so we can hear them better.
