OK, I'm tired of asking stupid questions. Well, questions that are stupid to ask Midwest people. So before I embarrass myself again, would someone please explain what they mean when they keep having sales of "Hail Damaged" cars. (Or could the ads be for "hale damaged" cars?) I understand Tent sales - we have those on the West Coast. I understand Fire sales, where there has not been a fire; it's just an expression meant to evoke the feeling that there is a pressing reason not to wait around, but to buy right away. But cars are big hunks of steel and really strong plastics, and while they would burn, I just don't see how little ice balls could be that big an issue. I'm thinking of coining a new phrase for all these new regional things I need to know - maybe a midqwestion?
Oh, and the beans were amazing. Being on the balcony meant they were closer to the kitchen. So they were the freshest beans I've ever had. Delicious!
