This was a day from hell. We spent about 11 hrs on the road and despite the forecast for hail and tornados, we still decided to leave Wichita. At first it didn't look too bad but when we got onto the open road with nothing around us except miles and miles of fields and dark skies ahead, we got worried. We pretty much drove for a few hours knowing that there were twisters forming right by us and we even drove through a couple of hail storms. The road from Wichita to Tucumcari was definitely not a fun one and not much to see except deserted towns and emptiness. Once we got through the storms and into a town with some sort of population we were relieved.
