amazing...I drew through there around 9:30 am that day and it was sunny and beautiful out - not a cloud in the sky!

Yes, I was there...this semi went around us while we were pulled over, you could not see 2 feet in front of you, I thought we were possibly in a tornado, wind was horrible, rain so bad you could not see and then came the hail..it was very scary!
