Default Hail Storm...

We had a pretty gnarly hail storm Saturday... About 2/3rds of the leaves on my 2nd year hops look like they were part of someones' target practice... lots of 'holes' but not much shredding... The hops range in height from 5' to 10' and most bines have cones starting to form....

Anyone been through the hail storm thing? Two days later and the color still looks good.. If the leaves die, will the cones keep growing?

Anything I can or should do?

Did you see this thread from this last week? That first pic is about the worst I could imagine wrt hail damage. Might want to see how Colorado_Carter's plants are doing, if they're pulling through yours may make it, too...
