Hail Hurts

I am sure I am not the first and won't be the last, but Hail Hurts... I was driving home today and got caught topless in a bad storm. The weather report only called for a 25% of rain ( as always ). So there I sat in traffic getting pelleted with marble size hail and no place to find refuge. The worst part was the other shielded drivers driving slow causing me to spend longer in the down fall. Guess I need to add a hard hat to the gear bag.

Ha, damn I've been caught in some nasty weather but never hail. That would be almost the worst nonsense I could imagine driving without the top. Except maybe like an egg truck hitting a bump or a cattle truck having the back door fly open on you.

Lol.. Sorry about the Lol.. I have not had it have in the jeep yet but I was out on the dirt bike in the mountians. And the last ten miles back to the jeep it started to hail.

Ouch is right, top speed was about 25mph faster than that and they came into the helmet around the googles and thru the chin vent. But I had gear on the rest of me.

I am pretty sure you dont have much gear on in the jeep lol

Great post!
