This was my only solo chase of the year. The SPC issued a MODERATE RISK area in the far northeast Texas and Oklahoma Panhandles. I raced north on Highway 23 and stationed about 6 miles north of Beaver, OK, near Forgan, OK.
 
This, I think this was my scariest chases I've been on, I let the wall cloud pass right over me and I did not realize how bad things could have gotten.

Above, the large wall cloud is getting better organized and a small needle appears at the bottom of it.

A little better image of the small needle.
