I'm exhausted and I have to be at work in like six hours, so here's a couple photos and a brief description of the day:
No, we didn't see any tornadoes. However, we followed a tiny white cloud that formed over my office in Denver all the way to the Nebraska border where it cycled through very interesting structure and shot out these puppies below. At first, I wasn't sure what the size was ... guessed 3". Well, my phone is 3.75" in length ... AND ... measuring the larger hailstone below (at least estimated, given the photograph), I would pin the bottom one at 4". And we only briefly ran out to grab stones, so it was possible that there were larger.
There is video coming, though not mine.
Chased with Michael and Eric Carlson.
