Crappy that it was going on during the fireworks... I had to sit in my car and watch it all happen.. then when I was leaving, I got to winch someone out of a ditch.

Re: What the Hail!?! or Show me your ice balls!

I like the hail, thats what paid off my last jeep. Now I'm just waiting for the next jeep to get paid off. Who cares about a few dents when its paid for.
