Seems like there wouldn't be much difference between hail large enough to damage cars and hail large enough to damage PV cells...Plus there's not a lot of overhang there, so if the hail is wind-driven, about half the inventory is still going to get it.

I think the deal is that even if they are "Expensive", replacing solar panels is still much cheaper than paying for body work. Nobody is going to complain if the replacement solar panel doesn't quite match the ones next to it and make you do it over until you get it to match.

You seem to have misplaced two grandchildren. Are they out bombing around in the Jeep?

The otter two grandsons are back in meechigun.

This one came out quickly once he started moving. I'd guess he must have a lot of ratio in first gear to use once he fingered out how not to stall it.

High Ding from ewes eye guest. It’s a big, it’s a comfy. It’s quick when pushed. Smooth as a whale. Gold as a 70s bathroom. Rides like a cloud. Sips like a captain. What is it??
