Yea, it was in your back yard if you're in Arlington. I was just watching it on the news and they said that area was hit pretty hard. If you were around Irving/Coppell area you got hailed on pretty bad. Almost softball sized hail!

I saw some pictures of BMW's at Classic BMW (I think) that looked horrible, windows out and inch deep dents all around. Hopefully none of y'alls! Had to take cover in school and all I could think about was my bimmer in the parking lot. :O

Insurance is paying for repair. I only have a $250 deductible so not too bad.

Luckily my car was in the parking garage at work, but the alarm over my cube went off for like an hour as the storms passed over the airport. My house, in Arlington, made it out OK thankfully, but I saw several people with busted out rear windows on the commute home.
