[b]Denver Colorado: 4am Mountain Daylight Time[/b]
After a good flight and 5hr snooze thanks mostly to a cheeky upgrade, arrived in Denver in good shape. Wide awake at 4am thanks to the jetlag so am blogging. SPC moderate risk for Very Large Hail, Damaging Winds and Isolated Tornadoes today for the risk area so we're headed out of here around 9-10 mountain time. Batteries charged for some hopefully great photos.

Wow! What an amazing day. The drive North East then south back towards Limon today revealed the development of massive supercell structure then just as we tried to head south we were caught under the base and touched the hail core being instantly hit by huge hail estimated at 4-5inches, Both cars smashed windscreens and dents following the event.
This storm went on to line out and accelerate through the town we stayed in, speeding up eventually with forward motion around 115-120mph!
