I haven't forgotten my promise to post pictures. I either need to get the ones Joel took or I need to grab the ones I took using Amy's camera and upload them, and I haven't done either yet.

Interim update: three windows shattered, five more with frames broken so they'll have to be replaced even though the glass survived, lots of windowscreens trashed, a window air conditioner trashed, skylights trashed, roof will have to be replaced. We have a $4000 hail deductible on the house. We'll have to figure out whether we want to try to pay the incremental cost of any upgrades we could do as long as we have to replace a bunch of stuff.

The Taurus is totaled, though we'll be buying it back since it's just cosmetic damage. We'll be getting around $4000 for it net, so that pretty much covers our deductible on the house. The Honda took approximately $7500 in damage. The trailer hasn't been evaluated yet but I suspect it's totaled as well.

Yikes!!

I'll second the yikes! and add the following potential unobtanium lining:

If you have to do some bodywork to the Taurus anyway, this could be a perfect opportunity to replace the fiberglass panels with layered composite armor.

If you go this route, I want pictures!

The Taurus is my commute car.

Which means the rest of the household will now be restraining me from evil cackling and looking up the details for doing this…

Oh dear, that sounds very bad. Thanks for checking in and I'm very glad it wasn't worse :-(

I'd heard about this, but ... wow. Didn't realize it was that extensive. Glad everyone is okay.

Pictures soon

Got the phone pictures uploaded to a gallery, finally. Need to rename them to be more usefully descriptive, but I've already done one pass of that elsewhere, so it shouldn't take much. Coming soon.
