We had to deal with this last night, along with several small tornadoes, straight line wind in some areas 80-100mph and 4-12 inches of rain, depending on your location. Lots of fun for us car dealers.....:( And we've got about 5 more nights of the same thing forecasted.

Definitely going chasing sunday---weather looks halfway decent for some Naders
There were several chasers parked out front of my house yesterday. They got to see 4 or 5 but they were little fellas, F0's and 1s that tore off a sheetmetal roof or two but mostly kicked up dust. 50 miles southeast of here a couple of slightly stronger ones did quite a bit of damage.

Severe weather is supposed to hit western Oklahoma and western north central Texas for the next 5 days, so if you're close, come on down.

Two hailstones were shown that measured in excess of 7 inches in diameter, one that crashed through the roof and wound up intact on the living room floor. I didn't want to post it; figured everybody would claim it was fake. But it wasn't fake.

One was found larger than the one I posted; over 5 inches in diameter. Came right through the roof of a house. A bunch of 'em in the 4 inch range beat the snot out of every car at a local Mazda dealership. Most are beyond repair; they'll wind up at Copart or IAA.

We were lucky; lost one car to the hail, a 2005 Malibu trade-in sitting outside a body shop that wasn't worth a great deal to begin with. As I type this, we've got another dry line approaching that's loaded with hot cells and hail cores....oh, boy....:(

^ hit a big Ford dealership here last Wednesday night.
Totalled everything outside, helluva mess.
We have had a 20% chance of rain for the past week. Very little rain but hail 3 days out of the 4.
Supposed to be a motherfucker for the next couple of days.
One on the ground in the middle of ranching country yesterday, stayed in the same place for what looked like an hour. Soooo lucky it wasn't in a populated area.

Fitting, we just had the 50th anniversary of being hit with a monster back in '70.

We get ours in 2029, 50 years after what was at the time the most destructive (dollar wise) tornado in the country's history. We had a $50 million (1960's money) hailstorm back in the day, but nothing like it since. Major flooding in 2015 but in all, we've actually been pretty lucky since the 1979 disaster.
