Stormy sunset [Photo by Kazza the Blank One]

Last night’s wild storms certainly made for a pretty sunset (which I enjoyed as I dried off in borrowed clothes after cycling from O’Connor to Hackett in the worst of it)

Thanks to the readers who sent in pictures (slideshow below)

So excuse me if I am not quite overwhelmed by Thor’s pop and crackle in the capital the other day. Jamika. If we don;t get excited by these thing what a boring life we would live

The guts of the storm went through Hume as I was heading south on the Monaro just before 6pm. Kudos to my fellow drivers who were actually driving like sane, rational people and not trying to do 80km/h in the pounding rain, the lightly flooded roads and practically invisible lane markings.

More dribble in #5 than what fell out of the sky yesterday 🙂

Canberra storms! Meh You’d think it was Armageddon the way the Canberra types carry on. A couple of flashes, some bangs and the dribbling micturation of a lesser thundergod does not constitute a ‘storm’. In fact, I would rate this week’s flurry at perhaps .5 on the BVI (Bris Vegas Index). A BVI 1.0 = A Typical Brisbane Summer’s Afternoon / Evening Storm. The kind of flapping tempest that could only be built from a day of high temperatures and high humidity. Where, at about 3pm-4pm, the skies darken, the light turns amber-mauve-cyan, and giant sith lords wearing black cumulus robes break the sky with their forked lightsabres. After the lightshow, the winds pick up, the temperature drops 10 degrees in 10 minutes, and the rains bucket down. Not real NQ/NT wet season rain, but enough to compel the average Canberran to build a boat using cubits as measurements. And if you somehow missed the show on account of, say, being in a coma or in a mine shaft, then you may be reassured that it will be playing 4 or 5 afternoons a week for the entire summer season. So excuse me if I am not quite overwhelmed by Thor’s pop and crackle in the capital the other day.

I just think the Virgin Blue pilots who managed to get us up above it and West through the epic turbulence are utter heroes. I arrived in Adelaide shaking and remained utterly hyperactive from the adrenaline for about 2 hours. Our plane was rocking side to side, swaying with the gusts for well over half the journey!

And kudos to Canberra Connect / TAMS for taking my call about a blocked stormwater drain at 7pm and having two blokes and a drain cleaning truck outside my house by 10pm last night.

Oh man I was watching that from work last night, wishing I was out with my camera.

Thanks for sharing!
