My wife (Diane) and I went storm chasing this past Sunday, June 8, 2014. We observed two brief tornadoes south of Artesia, New Mexico during one of the biggest severe weather outbreaks in years.
 The first tornado touched down 4 miles south-southwest of Artesia...or 2 miles west of the intersection of South 13TH St. & Blevins Rd at 6:16 PM MDT. 
The second tornado touched down 8 miles south of Artesia just west of US Hwy 285 near Kincaid Rd at 6:28 PM MDT. It was on the ground for at least one minute maybe a couple more.
This supercell thunderstorm produced an enormous amount of golf ball to grapefruit size hail from Artesia to south of Carlsbad. Please visit the link below to view my blog with more photos of that hail.

Did We Or Did We Not Have A Tornado Here? Tough Call.
After further review of our photos and video I'm calling this a  tornado. It touched down 4 miles south-southwest of Artesia,  NM, or two miles west of the intersection of 13th St. and Blevins  Rd at 6:16 PM MDT, Sunday, June 8, 2014. It was on the ground for a couple of minutes.


This second brief tornado touched down about 9 miles south of Artesia, New Mexico on Sunday, June 8, 2014 at 6:28 PM MDT and about 1/2 of a mile west of US Hwy 285.

Two supercell thunderstorms developed near Corona, New Mexico Saturday, June 7, 2014. They then moved off to the southeast. I first started filing at 7:35 PM MDT about five miles north of the junction of U.S. Hwy's 285 & 70 north of Roswell, New Mexico. This is a time lapse (16X the normal speed) video.
