A damaging storm just came through my area (north Texas) and I thought I would share some video I got of it. Enjoy,
Also i wanted to apologize for having not made a thread about today's weather I had considered it almost a week ago but time hasn't permitted,I hope
everyone is safe. Please check in.
It went from this beautiful scene
to this within 10 mins; hail the size of eggs & tennis balls and 70mph winds, as windows were once again blown out and car alarms going crazy (sorry
for the blurriness of this video)

Your good brother, the truck has survived two large hail events, surprisingly no damage. Many cars windshield are not as lucky as I have been. Must be
the tundra, I love that truck .. I usually make threads detailing the threats in advance, I didn't have time so I am hoping everyone is alright and
was not caught by surprise. Anyway, thank you brother I'm good I love the weather( crosses fingers a hailstone doesn't take me out one day) .. But
now I have ice for this jack and coke, that's taking Mother Nature by the balls cheers
No sir it was not a micro burst, it was a supercell with a powerful hail core, a microburst occurs in very hot tempatures and as the storm collapses,
a damaging gust is brought down to the surface often faster than 90mph which can tare houses apart, and topple cars.
Well same here. I'm at a high point next to the Ohio river. So severe weather starts right here. It's amazing to watch. The clouds will hold up and
grow in mass/moisture. Then lightning starts cracking. ( had to replace many cable boxes due to power surges )
Some day I'll figure out how to upload to YT too..😊
These pics show damage in Wylie yesterday. They are saying the storm had baseball and softball sized hail and caused over a billion dollars in damage.
It's a wonder no one was hurt.
I really enjoy your threads Tech. Just don't put yourself in harms way to get a vid for us. It would only take one of these puppies to kill you.
Thank you brother, and you are right that was one powerful and beautiful storm, but also damaging we are lucky no one was killed, I actually live in
Wylie and occasionally I do get to excited and risk it for the thrill and video, that storm however was humbling and I had to go inside it was like
watching a wall of destructive ice come at you at 70pmh for at least five minutes. Some have said my threads are hyperbole the truth is north Texas
has been seeing more damaging storms over this past year than usual. I had discussed making a thread to warn in advance about this system almost a
week ago but time didn't permit and so I do apologize to you all. Thank you for your concern and you are right it doesn't matter how brave you are
mother nature can take you down in a heart beat, truthfully as windows were being busted I did become a bit concerned for my own safety (which is
unusual) I also knew this storm was elevated and occurring in cooler air which diminished the tornado threat but as you pointed out hail to the size
of baseballs can kill you just the same. Anyway I am glad everyone is safe thanks for checking in.
