Intercepted tornadic supercell and 5cm hail with Tim Marshall

In Texas at the moment with my hosts Tim and Kay Marshall. Went out for a chase with Tim on Friday 13th 2007 and intercepted a tornadic supercell - unfortunately our position prohibited us from observing the half mile wedge near Seymour! We then headed south to near Fort Worth where we observed hail to 5cm in diameter. Of course the supercell went on to produce base ball sized hail as well as a few tornadoes along the gust front.

Awaiting another system of worth - in the meanwhile catching up with various items.
