I got photos of the damage in Golden Springs if you need them. I missed getting to chase that storm because I couldn't leave work til 3:30, but saw the cloud tower driving down that way.. Also got photos from the 2nd tornado warning for Calhoun, and I was just about in the thick of things where I ended up camping out to watch the storm...
Also was amazed at the smell of the pines in Golden Springs and the ground fog produced by the hail... what an experience.. at least I didn't get caught in the softball size hail from the 2nd storm.
By the time I got home alittle after 5, there was still hail on the ground at my house in Weaver..

Michelle, That's quite a story. Y'all had it rough. Something eerie about the smell of pine after a storm like that. Sure, I'd love to see the pics!
