Well I haven't done much these past few days a little rest and recuperation. (smoking a little venison when I get the chance). So I thought I would dig into the archives and tell you the story of the Great Hail Storm of 2008.

July 2nd 2008.
I was up in Lansing purchasing some "party favors" for a big 4th of July party we had planned. Just as I had the last "favor" loaded into the trunk the sky let loose and the wind began to howl. We ducked back into the garage and waited for it to pass. It was pretty bad. Little did I know what was happening 15 miles to the South where I live.
I arrived home to the carnage you see below. 70mph winds rain and hail.
That is the side of my hot tub, below is damage to the house and camper:
