STORM CHASING 2006-2007

Well, it's definitely been a long time between drinks... almost four months since my last chase. There's been some spurious and weak activity on and off since then, but not enough to get me out. This storm was technically not in Brisbane, but on the Qld-NSW border around Coolangatta. Luckily I just happened to be in the area when this fired up.

There had been some previous weak activity further offshore, but this one was close enough to the coast to hear thunder. Rain radar at 9:20pm:

It hung about giving us a great light show just slowly drifting away from us over a few hours.

A very nice surprise after such a long time without storms!
