Oh no! You’ve checked the radar, and a storm with potential hail is coming! You don’t have a garage or carport to store your car. What do you do? How can you protect your car?
Have any large buildings nearby? If the storm is approaching from the west, try parking your car on the east side of the building. Basically, you are using the coverage from the building to hopefully alleviate the worst of the storm. If the wind is strong, the building may completely shield your car from the damage of the storm.
Blankets or Car Covers
Old blankets will work in a pinch. Lay them over your car and tape them down with duct tape. Just be careful where you put the tape. You don’t want the tape leaving any residue behind in unwanted places. With enough advance warning, or if you live in a hail prone region, you may benefit from purchasing a car cover.
Covered Public Parking
As you are out and about it may benefit you to keep an eye out for any sort of covered public parking. Look for shopping center or mall parking garages. If the hail gets to you before you make it to the parking garage, look for any sort of shelter (i.e. gas station canopy, overpass).
