What an adventure I had Sunday! Went out for a chase and ended up having to visit the Oberon region just before it all went off! Got some impressive staccatos and crackling thunder. Then took off to attempt some hail punching no matter what the size. Obviously the storms had gone severe given the sudden increase of lightning activity. Went down the wrong road and had to turn back. Passed through a cattle grid and the car died!
The annoying part was that the storms were slow moving and producing some impressive staccato lightning bolts. I also was about to position and move with the storm complex having read the situation well! I had to watch the system slowly drift away.Coincidently the tow truck driver was a close friend to David Caroll.
