4:00pm. Looking south we finally see some cells fire up.

4:35pm. We intercept the cells east of Ardmore.

 5:35pm. East of Madill we get a rotating wall cloud and some funnels forming off of it.

6:00pm. A little farther east, wall cloud reforms. The storm right-turns and dives south. We have no south road options because of Lake Texhoma and get swallowed by the precip core. Fortunately the hail is no bigger than dimes.

We end up giving up near Hugo around 9:00pm.
