About 5 p.m., just before quiting time at the Toyota Dealership where I work, the skies got real dark. Few minutes later, the biggest downpour I have ever seen in my life, with such high winds, that it was raining sideways and then the dreaded hail stones. You couldnt hear anyone talking above the noise of the stones hitting the roof of the building and some of us thought a twister was about to visit us. This lasted about 15 minutes, died down for a few and then came on again with more force than before. When it was finally over, and we were able to get outside, most of the car alarms were going off, and we knew there was some serious damage to all the new cars and trucks including my new truck.
The Toyotas all suffered hail damage, but not as bad as the used cars, particulary, the Jeeps and Fords which suffered major damage to the sheet metal. (thinner sheet metal?)
Insurance estimates put the damage at over 2 million, not including damage to the building.
No clue as to how much damage costs are on my truck just yet, but if you flip the coin, we were all damn lucky no one got hurt.
