Chase Recap:

This was another day of leave work early to potentially go see storms. I headed out from Norman and had to fill up my truck on the way home as I was watching storms go up near Norman. Everyone was waiting for me at my apartment and we headed down I-35 in a hurry. I was originally going to go to Purcell and play the storms along the boundary near OKC, but we decided the chances of a decent storm were better down in Texas, so we hauled to get down there.

We headed southwest out of Gainesville then west, eventually ending up on the storm near Sunset. Got some good hail video and nice pictures of structure before heading back to Gainesville to eat and meeting up with David Drummond.
