Chase Log

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.
