Mother Nature's Mud Slushy

A few nights ago a freak thunderstorm developed just north of my hometown of Amarillo, Texas. Along with the usual rain, wind and lightening, this storm dumped 4 FEET of hail. The individual hail stones were not super large but freakishly plentiful. Here is some footage of mother natures mud slushy. Highways were forced to close and snow plows were brought in to clear the roads. 

Here is some video footage ...

Is that you filming!?!? Hope not! Hope you were all safe and sound somewhere safe and sound and far away from that crazy weather!

Yikes! Take care

That is CRAZY. Mother Nature has been just plain strange the last few months.

I wonder how many cubic millions of yards of top soil was washed away there? You did say 4 feet deep hail? No that is a wee bit to much for me.

I remember those days, living in N. TX! Racing to get my car under cover, then watching from the safety of the front porch. Never saw anything quite like that though!

Holy you-know-what Batman!

That is way too up close and personal for anyone to have to deal with.

That almost looks like a lava flow. What a mess that must have left behind.
