Hail just shattered my front windows! ETA a pic of the hail! Incredible!

Posted by   + Show Post

We had hail here, not huge maybe golf ball size. I guess the angle was just right, and it was coming through my front windows! The windows were shattering, glass was flying everywhere.i was screaming at my kids "get away from the windows!!!" Then we went in the bathroom to wait it out. It was so scary! There is glass all over my house. I tried to pick up most of it, but I will have to wait until tomorrow to get the big stuff. I haven't looked at my car yet, I hope it's ok. 

I found this pic on facebook, It was taken a couple of miles from my house, i've never seen this much hail!

wow! I've seen a window busted out by things flying from a tornado (and by things I mean it was the bathroom window...I was in there as a 6yr old and a big branch came through the window! I screamed and ran...)

hopefully house insurance can help with the window replacements!

You must not be in Oklahoma Kansas Texas or Missouri

Quoting o0gone0o:

That's scary! Glass breaking is always scary, even just dropping a glass. But have stuff flying in, shattering glass, and being all noisy is just terrifying! At least for me it is.

Even a small tree will break the speed of the hail and reduce the damage.

Quoting lovevamp:

There are no tree's big enough and with my luck lighting will hit the damn tree and it will land my car. Lol



Thank god for Insurance




Quoting opinionatedmom:

Park it under a tree.





Quoting lovevamp:

I can't we don't have a garage:( and it really worries me now seeing your window.







I'm staying away from windows and ds is in bed with me since Dh is out if town working.








Quoting mommyakabooby:

Put your car up if you can, and stay away from the windows! 

Quoting lovevamp:

It just started coming down out here. Tv went out for a few mins, I'm sure there's more coming.
