I'll bet not too many people know that Bing Crosby's real name is Harry Lillis Crosby, Jr.

Several were reported up here in northern colorado on wensday so they held us at school for an extra 20-30 minutes but no damage and no injuries so thats good since then its been rainy and cold started snowing this morning while me and dad were at walmart picking up some chichen fried steak and hash browns and some other stuff so hopefully it stopls snowing and raining because the last thing this state needs is another flood althogh our town has a family dollar now but that wont help if trucks cant deliver

No snow here, but rain is in the forecast every day until Saturday. Yep, it's mid May, time for April showers. As long as it's above freezing I ain't complaining.

April showers? In June of 2004 it seemed like it was raining the whole month that year, as I remember it well.

Well, with yesterday's storms came golf ball sized hail!

 

My new 2013 Hyundai Accent SE 6 spd got nailed VERY bad with it! The car was perfect prior to the storm and now it could be totalled..... :(  

 

The hood, roof, pass. quarter, top of pass doors.

I heard that in parts of Illinois near me (not actually by me, thank goodness, but just north), there was hail 2 1/2 inches in diameter! Ken, you must be in the area that got hit with that stuff.

Sounds like they got some hail out in Rockford Harry, my new bosses live there and their house got missed, but a friend's ace not too far away got hit.

Yep Harry. Work is about 10-15 minutes from the border...........A co-worker shared the video with me of my car getting pelted in the hailstorm. The dents are up to 2 1/2" across....stopped counting at 80. :(

Gotta love midwest weather...  :rolleyes:

 

The weird thing is, while all this mayhem was going on just north of me, right here all we got is light rain. No wind, no hail, no lightning and thunder... just a gentle light rain.

You mean that they couldn't just "buff out" your old Hyundai? Good luck with your new one Kennyboy.
