...Storm! Yes, finally!
Taken out on the old Phone Line opal fields, Lightning Ridge N.S.W. on the 9.12.12 at 11:26pm EDST.
Okay, last night was pretty amazing by storm standards. This was a monster single cell highly active storm raging out on the plains just East of town and headed away North East. Once again I was on foot so it was about a kilometre walk out there but very much worth it.
What I soon realised is that a new storm was building directly behind me here and already highly active. I had to put in a plan to move before too long so I could walk a further two kilometres back out to the western facing opal fields to grab a bit of the sheer onslaught we were soon to receive over the coming three hours. Oh boy...
