  1. @kathrynprociv, yes, there was softball-size hail in the town of Coyle, Oklahoma; and tennis ball-size of hail in the city of Kingfisher, Oklahoma, on Thursday, May 11th. Both were exactly thirty minutes apart. There was even grapefruit-size hail in Langston, Oklahoma, just five minutes after the giant hail in Coyle. That was crazy! #awhailno 🙁

  2. I had thought early morning severe thunderstorms & tornadoes were rare. Yet yesterday, 5-12, S.E. La. had them again. That’s at least twice this year. Was my thinking ‘rare’ wrong? Or, are these ‘flukes’? Signs of change? Makes an interesting drive to work!
