Began this day in Norman, leaving at around 11. I picked up a new cell phone and luckily had an awesome girlfriend who drove to the target while I toyed with my new gadget (Samsung Galaxy S6).
We sat just south of Amarillo while I worked on some electrical issues with laptop. You may not care to read about all that, but I like to say it so I won’t forget it!
The first storm went up west northwest of Amarillo. You can see my chase update here, where I talked about the initiating thunderstorms. I waited for a storm further south.. This might not have been the best call, but we stuck with it. The “north” storm went on to produce a crazy demon supercell that was all carved out, produced big hail and was tornado warned for some time.
Further south, we were on a storm that went up then died out, so we bailed all the way down to Lubbock area where we captured the hail seen below near Ralls, TX.
I captured this amazing photo before we went into the core of the storm. What a beautiful display of nature!
