Looks like a doozy of a storm moving in, for all that we’re not in the warning zone.

If you get photos of the excitement please send them in to .

Good thing I mowed the lawn yesterday . . .

Just in time to mow it again on the weekend.

Meh, it was nothing. Hit me at the arboretum & continued all the way back to the city. I got wet but that was is.

Passed over Kaleen with more of a whimper than a bang.

More planes are pushing back, so the electric stuff and wind shear risk must have passed to the east. That was a fierce storm while it lasted.

There’s not a great deal of wind yet out Queanbeyan way, but we’ve already had a good dump of rain.

BOM as at 1:09 pm puts us in the warning zone for large hailstones and damaging wind.

DUB 1:23 pm 08 Nov 11

They’ve included ACT in warning now.

We are about to get smashed. And I’m on a flight to Melbourne shortly. argh. Hopefully it’ll sail through. Reports of a storm at Bombala over night, they reckon there was a twister in it, relocated roofs and sheds galore.

132500 for SES when you get home and find a tree in your living room or whatever.
