Paul Stoddard was taking to his insurance agent about the damage to his home and two cars.
He counted more than 40 dents in his 2011 Volkswagen sedan.
The damage was all over the front hood, the back trunk and on the sides too.
The hail also cracked his skylight, and ice chunks came through the house through the solar fans.
"The hail was bouncing up there and through the tubing and through the living room and the hail was bouncing around there and the dogs were chasing the ice," said Stoddard said.
Stoddard said in addition to all the hail, his rain gauge showed that, between 5 a.m. and 7:30 a.m., 5.6 inches of rain fell in the backyard.
Across the canal, Doug Miller's yard looked like a wreck. There was not just one, but two dead birds.
A third dove hovered under a tree, looking very shell-shocked.
"The noise was just incredible. It was like New Year?s Eve with all the fireworks going you couldn?t even hear yourself talk," said Miller
The ti leaf in the back yard looked like another plant altogether. and the holiday poinsettia was looking more like a Charlie Brown tree.
