Area Chased:  S OK / W TX

Discussion: I left early that morning to head down to Denton, TX to pick up my chase partner Jeff Lawson.  One of the reasons I left as early as I did was to get down to the Ardmore, OK area to observe some severe storms already occurring.  There were some intense individual cells and one on going supercell in a cluster.  When I reached a storm that was severe for a while it had just gone east of I-35 leaving a swatch of small hail several inches deep on the side of the road.  So naturally I got out and took stills.  Nothing materialized later that day.
