Scared the 'hail' outta me.

My fiancee and I are sittin at the double drive in and we hear a loud SMACK! We're like WTF was that. I look up and see what I think is large rain drops. SMACK, SMACK, SMACK! Wrong, it starts pouring nickel-sized hail. I was getting PO'ed, thinking 'great. have my new SVT focus for just a week and have to file an insurance claim.' After it stopped, I got out to check the damage. To my relief, there was none. Then it hailed again, this time pea sized. Didn't even stick around for the second movie and went to a gas station to double check under the lights. No damage that I could see. Hail is loud when it hits your moonroof.

hail sucks man.
It caught me on the interstate a couple of weeks ago. I just floored it, doing like 85 trying to get to the next exit ASAP to get under a gas station port to protect my car. No damage though, but damn that was loud!!!!
