You must be in Brisbane with me.  I can’t believe how ferocious it was.  I’m so sorry you had so much damage to your home. It was frightening having the house windows being smashed.  We’ve never had hail in our suburb before in the 14 years I’ve lived here but suddenly it was enormous hail and I was completely unprepared to defend my home.  Lucky our pets are ok though. 

Our cars are badly hail damaged all over including my friend’s late-model ute that I’ve borrowed for a few days that has hail damage on all panels, a smashed windscreen and both side mirrors.  I ran out with blankets to try and cover the cars but was taking golf-ball hail hits to the head so couldn’t cover them.  I am not so worried about our 2 cars but I feel absolutely sick about my friend’s ute.  We only had one house window broken luckily, but we’re going to be up for over $2,500 in car excesses to get the repairs done and I just don’t have the money, I’m so stressed right now.  And my ear is absolutely throbbing from a hail whack.

I think I need more wine…

I felt the same way after hurricanes Sandy and Irene hit us in the USA. Irene put a foot of water in our basement and ruined so many if my childhood things, and Sandy took down trees and fences. I felt so vulnerable and was pretty down for a while. I lost so many things with memories attached, like pictures and cards, and it’s just an icky feeling not to feel safe in your home.

Jacqui90:  so sorry to hear this and to AussieEncore:  It’s horrible about the damage but I am glad you are both safe. Possesions (owned or borrowed) can be replaced, people cannot, stay safe ladies.

I’m in Melbourne so have heard about the storms on the news and have seen pictures of the damage. I can’t imagine how scary that must have been 🙁
