    That was about 2 miles from my house, the wind was unreal but so was the hail storm a few hours later. No BS, we went out and gathered some of the hail & it measured 2-2 1/2 " across. It pummeled the hell out of my GF's car, thankfully the Camaro was in the garage.

    Hail just did $40k worth of damage to my property and a couple vehicles.

    Damn! I hope yer insurance does ya right...

    The street signs like that are designed to flex, I was on the 101 freeway in San Jose back in 89 when the Loma Prieta let go and I swear the sign was going to hit the tops of cars as we approached.

    Wild! that one was put to the test!

    I never would have thought those signs could flex like that. Do they have any way to tell if it has been over stressed to require replacement? I would guess it is just replace upon failure.
