MAN HOW COOL IS THIS !!!! jeeze aint seen one like this for a couple of years !! Last time, was when Q1 opened.

For those in UK< who have never been to Australia..

The typical scenario ( during summer months , and its only SPRING ! )

Hot day, then gets very hot and very humid..
Wnid picks up, about 4pm ish.. then very high winds, and you can see lightening from all directions.
It swirls around you, and the cracks of thunder shake your fillings, the storm intensifies, ...
The humidity increases, the lightening strikes get more ferocious..
Then if your very unlucks, HAIL hits you !

And i mean HAIL the size of Cane Toads wrapped in KINDER EGG BOXES !! wearing shiny helmets and drinking LUCOZADE !!

Its a marvel !!

I LOVE IT !

Oh wow! Get me all excited! I grew up in Johannesburg, with brilliant, scary storms. I miss them! Can't wait to get to Oz now. I love the feeling of the electricity in the air, making your hair all static!

About 10 minutes ago just saw the Emirates flight from Auckland coming in over the Southside with lightning bolts nearly hitting it every few seconds.....bet that was a fun ride! Quite surprised they came in at the height of the storm.
