June 3rd, 2002 Lincoln County, CO Hailstorm
This was almost the destruction of the vans. Unfortunately it did happen later near Kit Carson, Colorado between tours. On June 3, a high based supercell developed over the Palmer Divide before noon and took its slow sweet time getting well organized. By the time it approached the Limon, Colorado area, it was a full blown hailstorm. This storm produced 90 mph winds and 4″ diameter hail. We were pelted a couple times with baseball sized hail. We knew the tornado threat was virtually zero as this storm was totally outflow dominant.
