Default Hail

Wow, hail is really noisy in the Diesel Pusher. Pretty sure there's no damage, though.

Things got pretty bumpy across the entire southeast yesterday and today.

The airline (my employer) sent out an email reminding us about severe weather procedures. I assume our in house meteorology dept may have become concerned.

And a decent rain in the 5th wheel is pretty loud. At some point it goes from putting you to sleep to keeping you up.

Even Rain is noisy if it's heavy, as it was here yesterday... And I'm stuck without Air Conditioning, just what fresh air I can suck in with the fantastic fan.

Survived though switched fan to low and almost closed the lid so it shed water.

Yes.. You want real noise.. I grew up under a "Tin Roof" (Well sheet steel) now that's noisy in a hail storm .

I lived in an old farm house with a tin roof under a black walnut tree. For those not familiar with black walnuts they are close to tennis ball size.
