As The Storm Clouds Gather

This week our storm season has heralded it’s arrival with many bangs, crashes, rumbles and flashes of light. With it, thankfully, has come some rain. Not a lot, but combined with the humidity it’s getting the grass moving.

This afternoon,  from about lunchtime on, massive thunder heads built and turned into wild storms that closed the Pacific Highway and put on a mighty fine light show for hours.

Just on dark, as we walked back home from the dairy, Jess noticed some interesting clod formations.

This storm had passed to the south of us, and seemed to be rolling back in off the coast directly from the east.

This was taken a few minutes later, looking southwest. The clouds were forming interesting ridges and whorls.

This is the same direction about ten minutes later from 500 metres down the road. Those clouds look a little hail like for mine!

This last one was taken from The Bight lookout near Wingham.  That dark line to the left is actually a bolt of lightning, but my camera (read Aspera Tradies phone) was on the wrong speed.

These beautiful clouds brought very little moisture with them, but they were lovely to see after so long with bright blue skys.
