    Even more scary to me is the fact that someone was still up in a helicopter while this was going on? Seems like a very unsafe place to be!

    Aptly demonstrates just how tiny we humans are compared to mother nature. Was anyone hurt?

    Thats so bad.. I hope that driver got out! I was driving a horse trailer when I am almost positive I almost got caught in one yesterday afternoon on the OH/IN border. I tried to get the truck and trailer under a bridge atleast but there were semis and cars and campers and trailers all over. I've never seen weather like that up close.. and it came so fast there was absolutely nothing we could do to get away from it. Thankfully, I think we just got lucky. This weather lately is just insane.

    mroades, you beat me to it: I just saw a news clip saying not to park or hide under a bridge/overpass during a storm!

    Well, about 10 cars and a semi beat me to it, so we were not under it, but in front of it. The hail was so big I was worried the horse I was pulling was going to lose it.. Luckily though he seemed unphased as far as I know.
