in my first long Airstream trip years ago we got caught in NC under a very bad thunderstorm. Hail so large it didn't seem real. The next morning I could see the dents on the roof. Jeez. It was not a good feeling.

Late that same day after being on the road in full Sun, I stopped for gas, and was amazed to see all the dents gone. Healed by the Sun. Wow..

I used to live in Maine where hail and ice storms were all too common. I have seen hail the size of golf balls and roads with inches of fresh ice on them. Two years in a row I had car windows busted and bodies dented. Just got spoiled living on the coast where hail is rarely seen bigger than a pea. Turning out to be a beautiful day. Sun is out and the birds are singing.

It seems the sun usually comes out after a tornado comes through for all to see the damage.
