Well, this is the "class 4" impact resistant roof which is the most hail resistant. We had a doozy of a hailstorm a few months ago and the only place I saw a few marks was on the edges, where two panels were joined.

Well, this last month (unlike the previous few) was roughly the same as August 2009 in terms of heat (100+ almost every day) and dryness, and the usage for this billing cycle was about 16% less than last year. I think we had a good apples to apples comparison this time with differences in weather being a very minor factor.
