    wow I live ib Hutto and we did'nt get any of that! We got some rain and small pea sizes hail but definately no tornados! Glad to hera you made it out ok! By the way what kind of cats are you after? we fished Travis 2 weeks ago and caught several 3 to 5 lb channels by pace bend park. The biggest was my wifes she caught hers on cut shad,the rest came on secret 7 and sonny's blood. There are several other places we fished lately on Travis that produced good numbers but nothing big. good luck.

    That hail was terrible. My step daughter was driving home from work and was caught in the middle of it. The hail broke the front and rear windshield, completely destroyed the sun roof, knocked off one of the mirror covers, broke a headlight, and pretty much beat up the whole car. I'm sure the insurance company will total it. There were alot of homes with windows knocked out as well.

    I am glad we missed all of that really bad weather up here in NE Texas. All we got was a lot of wind and rain which we needed badly. We just need a few more gully washers to get the lakes back up to normal levels.
