hail damage in Hastings

rasslinmama(4)June 21, 2007

We got slammed with hail the size of golf balls last night. All of my annuals and perennials are either shredded or broken off. I know they'll come back but I think I'm gonna cry a little.

I'm more upset about the flowers than the roof and car-don't tell my hubby!!!

That's terrible...not the part about being more upset about the flowers, of course. Insurance covers roofs and cars but no agent yet has told me that they will come restore my gardens when an "act of God" strikes. That is insurance I wouldn't feel terrible about paying!

I feel aweful for you! We are on the edge of Edina and saw NADA, ot even a drop of rain! We are getting some slight sprinkles today...but we are in need of not sprinkles or hail, just some long rain....my water bill is going to be $100.00 this month!!!!

I hope everything comes back for you, it looks like nice weather for "regrowing" is coming up!

I'm sorry to hear that rasslinmama. We had hail here in Owatonna too, about 5:30 am. and I was glued to the window when I should have been getting ready for work. Although this came down practically in sheets for a bit, it wasn't nearly as large as yours and only went on maybe 5 minutes or so. I got by with leaves with holes in them, and the plants under the trees were fine.
