ok ....I just came back in from checking it out. I didn't see any damage..BUT as you may already know I need to wax it before I can make that final call.. I know all the curves and finishes...it's my way of becoming intimate with the Caliber..if there is just ONE ding I'll find it. and it already had superior wax on it.. I watched the video again and as you can see..the hail was comming from behind the house so most of my caiber was protected I figured the front would be easiest to repair so I moved it up against the garage door .... while watching that video again..I was scared too Licia.

You may want to let your neighbors know you have a video, just in case there is damage to their cars, and they want a copy for insurance or something..

That sucks.. Hail damage can be deadly. Thats one of my biggest fears is being at work or out when we get a hail storm. Ive seen cars totaled due to hail damage.

We got hit hard here too. I had never seen it hail that heavily for that long. I was at work, and it was deafening. It broke out our sky lights and the boardroom window. One of the guys in my department had his windshield broken in the lot. Thankfully, my wife had dropped me off and took the car home under the carport just in time. School had let out just before that. I was worried about the kids that have to walk home.:str:

I've been looking at the side of my house and thinking I might build a carport next to the garage. I might even make it better than I have to.. so I can wall it in later and make a room. but for now all I got is a one car garage full of my other toys.

I'm happy that you and your Ber are okay (I know I would have cried if I find one dent on mine!). We just had hail a week or so ago. Luckily I was at work on the other side of town so there was only a lot of rain and wind. It was like fate was trying to protect my Ber =]
