Carts, Cars and Storms...

Grandma asked after hearing my eventful story to post it for you all to read! :) So I'm sure you all have heard and or experienced the storms that have been coming through Minnesota recently..Friday's storm was the first one that had actually bothered me..Paul and I had gone to Buffalo to pick up some parts to work on his car, on the way home it started raining, as it got worse it became harder and harder to see..it started coming down so hard we had to pull into the target parking lot to wait for it to pass some..we parked and not 5 minutes later, a shopping cart comes barreling out of a cart corral towards my car and smashes into it, flips up over the hood, and lands upside-down smack next to my car door, 2 wheels busted off! an what do you know, 2 more carts come flying, hit the curb right next to my car and landed in a heap along with the first cart, 1 more wheel busted! while this was going on, golf ball sized hail was pounding down all over, We waited for the rain to calm down to a steady downpour instead of the flash-flood-like rain and hail mix, then climbed out to take a look. the grill of my car..gone! the hood...popped and buckled, dents along the whole front! the radiator...pushed back towards the engine, along with the latch for the hood! what a mess! :) 

i guess i didn't know a shopping cart could do so much damage! -Debbie

The store affects the pocketbook in more than one way!
