The one thing about Texas is the weather.  If you don't like it wait a few minutes and it will change.  Central Texas was hit with severe thunderstorms recently and mammoth-sized hail.

The hail was extremely large, some as big as golf balls while others reached the size of a softball.  One person described the hail as gorilla-sized hail.

The hail was so large that it caused widespread damage across Central Texas. Cars were dented, and windshields shattered. Home windows and siding were broken, and roofs were left with dents and holes. The damage affected multiple counties in the Central Texas area.

For those of us on the outside looking in at the horrible damage these storms caused, we all feel sympathy for those affected by the damage.  At some point, we have all experienced these horrific hail storms or even more horrific tornado damage, and the aftermath.

With hail and severe hail damage, it will bring out tons of people trying to profit from the damage.  By now, Central Texas has been inundated by pop-up tents and hail damage experts who can repair your car, your roof, and anything else that was damaged.

Regrettably, with everyone filing claims after the Central Texas storm damage,  everyone else in Texas will suffer when it comes to home and car insurance, as it will cause others' premiums to soar.
