And well defended.

You laugh but folks in areas where hailstorms are more common actually do put protective stuff on top of their cars when storms are forecast. Not that it always helps...

I was at an SCCA National event in Mississippi many moons ago with my then week-old car, and there was a line of severe thunderstorms with hail and possible tornadoes forecast for Saturday evening. Knowing the forecast and seeing the storms approaching, I went out into the motel's parking lot and moved my car from its space to under the main entrance's awning. When the hailstones started dumping down, I watched two guys running across the parking lot with a mattress and blankets from their room to cover a Corvette!

Later in that season, I saw an Integra Type-R in the paddock of a Kansas event that was covered with 1" diameter dimples like a golf ball and missing rear hatch glass. A thunderstorm in Missouri where he lived did a number on his car the night before leaving home for the event.....

Every witty response I can think of typing would probably get me banned and I like it here so I'll pass.

Have some more wine LJ.

I'm honestly surprised that her post wasn't moderated to remove that meme.....

I'm not sure why I'm posting this here because at this time of year it's often accurate.
