EDMOND, Okla. – When giant hail falls like missiles from the sky, most people run for cover.
Not these guys, they head toward the storm.
HailTrace owner Derik Kline said, “When Mother Nature decided to do what it’s going to do, you gotta be there for it or get out of the way. We like to be there, as close as we can get.”
They call themselves the “Nerd Herd.”
They have a strange obsession with weather that began at a very early age.
“I’d go outside and pretend to be Mike Morgan or something,” Justin Hughes said. “The wind chill is negative four. They’ve been video taping me since I was a kid.”
They have turned their fascination into a full-time career.
