Tornado vs. W108 round 2

This is what a w108 looks like after surviving a direct hit from its second tornado since I have owned it. Every single roof for miles got damaged. Some are still repairing their homes. Hundreds of trees downed. I opened the front door and the pressure almost blew out my windows, barely was able to shut it.

And the winner is......

W108 survived without any additional scratches or dents. Thank goodness.
She is now safe and sound in dry dock awaiting completion of off season check list. Undercarriage wash, sand/paint exhaust, clean engine bay, rust treat surface rust on battery tray.
