Staff Report

“Our house got trashed,” said Dawn Cline of Friday’s intense hailstorm.

Cline and her husband James Cline own Aspen Copies & Office Supplies, 1907 Central Ave., in downtown Los Alamos. She told the Los Alamos Daily Post that their home was hit the hardest in the neighborhood and sustained the most damage.

“We lost our full front siding and siding on the side of our trailer, all of the shutters and all of the front windows … the front of the garage was de-painted and the hail broke through our double glass skylight and our roof. It looks like a drive-by shooting,” Cline said.

Cline discribed living through Friday’s ordeal as “unreal.”

“We were here as it was happening … the hailstones were bigger than ping pong balls … they left massive holes in our siding,” she said.
