    So the reality is that saving a couple of hundred bucks has a great deal of appeal. Anyone who has lived in Texas for all four seasons knows Thunderstorms come all year long in Texas, and we are one hail storm away from your pocket-book being thousands of dollars lighter. Texas-sized hail means the propensity for large damage to your roof, to your windows, to your fence, to your vehicle, and more. 

    With storms happening often, choosing to pay a high deductible in order to pay slightly less premium is like choosing to put a "Kick Me" sign on your back. You're going to feel the effects at some point.
