    Wow! I was watching a storm blow into Boulder last night ( a lot of lightening in the distance) but didn't really get anything. Guess the storm was just in Denver...

    Yup. Two nights in a row with a flooded basement. They were pretty wicked storms though.

    Not fun at all! We have 9 a/c out of service right now. 8 in DEN and 1 in GEG. We had a 190 get hit here in OKC the same day and was delayed about 3 hours. I had no clue hail could be so bad.

    I had a feeling the number would go up. Was it 6 320s? I heard some of the damaged planes were actually only a few weeks old. That's just sad.

    More than 18, we were told Skywest alone had 19 planes out of service yesterday as a result of what happened in DEN. Mostly CRJ-200s but a few -700s and a Brasilia as well.

    That number was just for F9

    They are saying anywhere from 3-10 days for repairs per plane depending on the severity.

    We had 20 airplanes fail inspections and were out of limits. I heard UAL had 8 or 9.
