| || |@Saint7UK: Maybe you might know the answer to this related question.
It seemed odd to me at the time but during a phone conversation with my Landlord a while ago, they said we should leave the window blinds open during hailstorms. Is this correct?
I can't see any logical reason why that would be so other than it being possibly more costly in some cases to replace damaged blinds than windows, perhaps?

Errrrrgh! Tricky one.... There is a school of thought that if you do then the modern glass is more resilient to such vast ice ball attack, having been in it last year in severity the jury for me is out I' m afraid. It does make sense as the storen is light Ali but...
Also sometimes these "attacks" are super quick or in an evening where one would be unable or have the balls to open all shutters. I happened to be in in last year during a raid and there was no way I could run 'round the house opening things. We lost 11 to damage on 1.5 sides of the house!
I can send you the vid I bravely took whilst cowering in the house for the minute or so the world looked like it was going to end, lol but seriously, the chance of me pressing the switches to see what was going on better or saving the shutters ( which by now were already trashed) was errrr... None
I should add... There is no scientific reason for leaving them open "unlike equalising pressure in a tornado" it will purely be damaged related, hoping the glass won't smash. However in a town last year there were more claims for broken glass and car windshields than shutter damage.... Some had both smashed shutters and glass behind!
