We had some of that famous Oklahoma severe weather on this day.  Poor Eric had just arrived back from a trip to Guatemala when he was caught in the worst of it on the highway.  His truck was beaten with golf ball sized hail and is dented beyond belief.  On my way home from work I drove through miles of what looked exactly like snow but was accumulated hail.  It was amazing.  I don't think any tornados touched down, but we had a lot of excitement nonetheless.

even think it's going to hail!
 More accumulation.  I got these pictures from Channel 5 &
