Most Memorable Stories: I am an avid storm chaser and have been fascinated by storms for as long as I can remember. That being said, my most memorable storm didn't even produce a tornado.  It was a thunderstorm, with hail the size of baseballs! Hail falls at about 95 mph, similar to a MLB fastball. I saw hailstones breaking through windows, car windshields, even through a tin barn roof! Thankfully no one was hurt, but that goes to show, even storms without tornadoes are worth taking seriously.
