Pulled in to Raton, NM Friday, just in time to get caught in a severe hailstorm with tornadoes all around us. Beat the AC covers off and made my little toad look like it had been beaten with a ball peen hammer. A foot of hail on my roof separated the seals around the ac's and let the water come in. Even with that, we were lucky. The same storm dumped golf ball to tennis ball sized hail just down the road.

Hail can be nasty and do a lot of damage. Sorry to hear about your damage. Sounds like repairs shouldn't be to costly (except for the toad). Park you toad in the bright sunshine and a lot of the hail dents will pop back out (been there, done that). Looks like a busy campground so probably lots of physical damage around you also.

Holy mackerel! Sure glad you missed THAT! Sounds life threatening if caught out unprotected.

"Wow" is right. Glad you are OK.
