Steve and I headed out today around noon even though everything looked worse as the day went on. After heading up to Bartlesville, meeting up with Aaron, and waiting around for a while, we headed West to the storm by Perry and got some good shots/footage of a shelf cloud as it passed by. It was definitely cold core as we nearly froze our asses off when it passed by. The wind picked up and it dropped nearly 20 degrees down to 42 F. After it passed, we headed West again and saw the ground and houses covered with pea to dime size hail. On the way back to OKC Steve and I stopped just North of Stillwater as a smaller cell passed over. Some more cold wind and small hail later and we were on our way again. Overall not a bad day for a first outing.
