did a bit of storm chasin' in Texas.... *vid*

Nothing like taking a vac day and chasin a twister down in west Texas. We debated whether to go or not but decided to heck with it lets go anyway. Made it just North of Archer city to intercept this cell that produced a wedge about 15 minutes prior to our arrival. Had to make a run for it under the awning of a chevy dealership to get out of the way of a hail shaft with baseballs in it. I had very clear instructions from the wife to not get any hail dents in her explorer, almost messed up. Gotta get a ham radio, and the road network in nw texas flat sucks. 360 mile round trip, bit of excitement, and best of all not having to be stuck at work fixing the 6.0's. about 4 min into it shows the wall cloud that produced the wedge. It all massed into a squall line and we decided to call it a day. My dad shot the video as i had to drive, I got a little but more or less the same . Not real dramatic on vid but for a brief moment it was pretty hetic, had to be there I rekon. More to come, I love spring in the plains.....game on!
