Hailstorm on I20 south of Gordon, TX
As we drove west to catch the Abilene storms a new supercell went up to our south. Sometime being late to the show gets the ticket.
I'm just glad we found some cover and it held up. I think I found 1 dent from a bouncing stone.

As we approached SPS we noted fattening towers to the west. We gassed up and continued up 287 and several cells merged in one large beast near Electra. We moved to the south side of town and watched a wall-cloud form as it moved straight at us.
As we moved back to the west side of Electra it turned into a merry-go-round with tornadic rotation. We were blocked from seeing any ground contact but later saw a cone wrapped in the rain. I'll have to review the video that mike shot of this as I was driving at the time.

March 31, 2008. Target today was Gainsville, TX but quickly shifted east as storms went up near Grandbury and moved towards DFW.
We eyed the northern storm in southeast Denton, co and got on it in McKinney just as it died.
Next we turned to the best storm which was just north of the Red River, up Hwy 75 and followed it to Hobart and beyond before giving up on a winding back road seemingly from the movie "Deliverance".
Best shot of the day was at sunset as the front lit up.
