So it hailed last night, and I didn't think anything outside was exposed enough to get damaged, but apparently I forgot about the grill. Both how exposed AND how cheap it is.
The red had started to bleach out lately so I put the cover on, and last night the hail machine-gunned it. Oh well. Not that I needed an excuse to upgrade the grill eventually, but jeez that didn't take long. Never skimp when it comes to your grill.
Current beer-scale: 6.7 & climbing! We'll see if it actually hits 100 today.
