Severe Storms, Hail, Wind and Dust Parkes to Orange 13th December 2018

Chased up to Parkes and then gradually got chased back. Overtook the line going through Orange at Bathurst . Got until hail 3 times but nothing sizeable. The rain though was very intense - dangerous conditions both in visibility and hydroplaning potential. And of course an intense mricoburst hit west of Orange near Molong and this put down a branch in front of my vehicle! It blocked the road but I was just able to go around it! Interestingly I had taken the precaution of looking for branches going given the strength of the winds and the tree lined road at that point. I was only about 200 metres within the tree region!

    We started only 70kms away from each other. I started at Marsden (after an overnight stay at Parkes). Good stuff and yes the rain ! it was intense to the point that I was thinking if I stop and let it take me over rather than drive on I would be trapped by a flash flood gully or creek
