OKC Area Tornadoes 11-10-04
I don't want to make this page too humerous as storms caused death and destruction on this day in Oklahoma.

A large long-track tornado tore through southern Oklahoma including the town of Oak Grove. The EF-4 rated tornado is the strongest and deadliest tornado in the February record books in Oklahoma.

Tornadoes are quite rare in Winter in Oklahoma, but when they do occur this time of year, the usually form in the far southern and eastern parts of the state.

This hailstone is about 2.2" in diameter which is slightly smaller than a tennis ball. These don't feel pleasant if they hit you in the noggin.
Dan Lockhoff took this picture of the top of head. That red area developed into a bruise.
