Bloody weather

Post by modelman on Wed Sep 14, 2016 7:54 am

Sat in the conservatory last night watching the electric-storm, loads of lightning & no thunder, then I noticed the clouds going towards themselves, then start to 'swirl' almost tornado-like, then BAM, like a gunshot, then another, & another, & seconds later it was deafening.
Marble sized ice-balls (hailstones) soon covered everywhere, it only went on for about 5 minimises or so, but as this happened as it was getting dark, I couldn't check around.
First thing this morning, I had a reccie around, conservatory roof,  seems ok, solar panels on roof, seems ok, cars, Jacies Smart ok, mine, it might be the light, but there seems to be a 'hint' of wobbly-reflections, indicating impact-strikes!!
Oh, I'll pop up on the MH, ladder out, * Inappropriate Word *!
A crack on one rooflight & this::

And guess what, 2 weeks of very hot & dry, now its chucking it down! so_sad

That's not good. on June 28th 2012 we had the same only lasted much longer, hailstones size of golf balls, caravan was written off , husband car had over 600 dents, only had it three weeks at the time, it was repaired and good as new, cost nearly £6,000, trouble was he was deemed to be at fault and so is still on the insurance policy, mine as well as I have him as a named driver. duh!!

Hope you get it sorted quickly, in 2012 there were thousands of claims, my car missed it as I was miles away,  just had the storm and no hailstones where I was. floods though.




Insurance had no one to claim off, so owners were responsible. they cover their own backs.

Wow!
Luckily, mine was nowhere as bad as that, but I just got up on top to patch it up & as I touched it, it began to disintegrate!
I actually work with identical plastic that the dome is made from & I know that it seriously degrades due to UV sunlight if unpainted, & when I fitted it a few years ago, I thought about painting it for that very reason, but I didn't.
Just ordered a replacement (£170.00) & when it arrives, it WILL be painted!! 
Checked Jackies car again & her glass roof IS OK, but my Passat estate HAS shallow indents. sensored1 sensored1

Had the same problem with insurance. I had some one clip my caravan I was towing with my then Topaz, I made no claim other party broke her mirror- £600 worth. After 18mths and the other party wanting to go to court, only to drop out with 1 week to go, I was given as no blame. Had to fight like made to get my increased premiums back on my car, motorhome, my wife also on her car, named drivers.
