Starting to put on a show, might get a bit from it if it pops over the top of the Border Ranges, otherwise it will spin  off up the coast and we will only catch an edge .
EDIT: Well a bit of a P1ss and a fart couple of very close hits of lightning and a steady shower for five minutes and its all gone, Heads up Gold Coast its heading your way now ..

The grass must be booming just south of the border at the moment.

I'm in Mackay at the moment.
But SWMBO says we got a good downpour at about 2am with enough Thunder and lightening for our wimpy dog to be petrified.

Yeah we got a good show!! Miss 5 couldn't handle it so she came and crawled into bed with me and SWMBO. I don't think the dog will climb out from underneath the BBQ any time soon!

Talking off grass, Reckon I'll need a 10 HP wet mower, might have to rig up the old Evinrude outboard in a trolley with a HD line trimmer head fitted instead of the prop  ;D ;D

It's amazing how strong some dogs get when there's thunder about. Haven't worked out if it's the fence or garden shed one of mine has moved, but it's managed to shift one of them, get out of its kennel and into the bloody house  >:(

The apprentice at work was camping at Somerset on Saturday when the storm went through. Reckons a lot of carnage through the campground.
No one on here I hope.

not the only one...........we've got an older ridgeback cross, bloody hell even a hint of a storm and it's wanting to climb, not jump, bloody climb onto your lap, whilst you're standing. the thing paws at you trying to drag you close as it can. On medication, pheromone collars and even the old t-shirt trick don't work on her....................

It always does when coming from the SW. It hits the hill, stays there, then the remnants go north of Mooloolaba and Caloundra area and further south. We get the dribbly bits.

It's when it comes from the SE that we cop it, same as those bastard winds. Remember a few years ago we copped 375mm in 3 hours. That sucked ;D That was when the opposite happened. South of Calounda got nothing, north of Maroochy River nothing,  it all funneled our way ;D

In saying that, we just got a reasonable soaking. No storm though.

Al

How right you are there mate.

At least this mornings one came from the west (or even a little northwest) and we finally got a decent drop.
That light show was fantastic. Haven't been out to have a look yet, but there where some really close strikes before dawn.

Luv the look of these storm cells (as long as everything valuable is under cover😁). 22mm up till this one strikes. I reckon we'll get another 25 out of it. All my tanks are overflowing (99,000 litres). Got to luv it!!!
We've waited 45 years to do this. Now our life will be complete!!

Unless you turn those tanks up the right way all that water will leak out.

You (we) would have to be very unlucky to miss out on some of that...but let's hope the tease is over.

Brisbane CBD got 47mm in 20 minutes earlier tonight, not sure what it totalled at in the end. Rained for about 3 hours at my place, had about 70mm (gauge says 72.6mm, but a small amount would have been Xmas day rain)....surrounding suburbs got between 80 - 90mm
