Storm advisory with hail warning

So we have this storm warning out and they say to expect hail. These never bothered me untill last fall when I bought my airsteam. Do these warnings drive anybody else to distraction? I bet I build a shed before it is all over......

Hey Gen,

We just got our shed built 3 weeks ago, and a few days later they had baseball size hail about 2 hours away, but by the time the storm got hear the hail was gone. I couldn't imagine what baseball size hail would do. I am thankful we have our shed.

At one point today we had rain, ice, snow, thunder, lightning, and I think I saw some brimstone coming out of the sky. Hail of a storm it sure scared me.

Nah, it don't bother me. Mine's in a shed already!

BTW We just had a storm pass through with pretty tiny hail. But the
temperature dropped about 20 degrees!

Rodney,
Our Airstream is outside also and I worry about it all the time when storms are brewing. We have searched our area for a place to store it. 31 ft storage is just not available and it seems most hay barns are full. So now we are looking into building a shed also.

We're looking into some type of shed for the Argosy; however, in Oklahoma, the hail sometimes goes right through the roofs of houses. A shed may just slow it down some. Now about those tornadoes.......

You just take your insurance settlement and continue to use the trailer. As long as the hail dents are only marble sized, most of them will pop back out after a couple more winters... don't worry, be happy!

Glad you aluminums OK. we saw an Argosy at a Tin Can Tourist rally last year that was so badly damaged it looked like a twinkie shaped golf ball - "bout the same color as a golf ball too.

Roger, that makes sense.
How did these trailers make it so far without us to protect them? Funny.
