When we finally arrived home, the damage there was horrific. Windows were smashed, the roofs and rain gutters damaged, our stuccoed walls looked as if someone had taken a hammer and pounded holes into them. It was total chaos to the tune of $88,000 of damage.
My daughter's house that had been built and completed not three weeks earlier, sustained damages of $55,000.
There was a silver lining in all of this mess, however. We got new roofs on our home, the barn, the chicken coop and the garage/workshop. Also new windows, rain gutters, and walls.
Now when I listen to the weather forecast and hear the word "hail" I cringe. I don't ever want to experience a day like that again and hope that nobody else does either.
