Well , my neon has been inside in storage at the old place and I moved it this past weekend to our lower walk out basement were I had some of my pumps till I get the shop built because i close on my old property Thursday . Shame on me for not putting in the base ment or ever finishing the eyebrow like DB mentioned last fall as I actually had started one but never finished it . Me and my kids watched for 5 or so minutes as it blasted everything , most were golf ball sized but rough shaped peices , it only got 3 letters , neon tubes are actually pretty dang tough , it broke the neon only on the ends were the GTO wire goes in , my neon guy suggested this method with individual letters and I am glad I took his advise .......I will get the 3 letters replaced and others tested and hopefully have you all some new pics this fall sporting a eye brow . Lol.

OUCH! I had a nice automobile destroyed here in Arizona back a few years ago due to hail. I feel your pain brother. It's even worse when you have no choice but to sit back and eat popcorn watching it.

Ouch.... That hurts!

We had a hail storm earlier in the year that totaled cars - so at least your trucks survived!

Too bad Travis. But it could have been worse as you said. We've had a number of big storms out here the last big one last week one hundred million damage planes cars RVs and homes.
Look forward to seeing it lit up again.

8 letters x2 electrodes = 16. Three out of 16 ain't too bad.

But, it's still disappointing.

Hey Travis hate to hear about the storm damage. Could have been worse from the looks of that hail. Hope to see it repaired and relit soon.

Ya could have shoved it under 1 of the trucks & it would have been Protected!

How many Pennies did the kids find? Never heard of it raining/hailing Pennies.
