The dents were a bummer, but not anything that I could have prevented. I'm trying to decide if it is worth spending the money on the deductible to get it fixed, being a white car, it isn't as noticeable. My neighbor has a week old Accord Crosstour that needs to be fixed, the way the fenders curve up as well as the door panels, they got dented too, so almost every body panel will need repair, I guess I got off easy! Maybe that's why he pelted me with baked beans

A friend once told me the car dealers he knew would leave the hail dented cars out in the hot sun, and they would undent themselves. Haven't tried it myself.

Probably wouldn't work with the beans

You can't make this stuff up. Apparently a can of Bush's baked beans went rogue and rolled under the tire of my neighbor's car. As he backed out and ran over it, it exploded, onto my car... Of all the things that I imagined washing off my car, baked beans was very low on the list!

Someone is wondering where their can of baked beans went.

The worst of it is that we have trees budding and the branches are so laden with snow we are going to lose some. Things are hanging nearly to the ground. I had to push Ken out of the GARAGE this morning.

Sometimes a guy just can't motivate himself to get going in the morning.
