Storm Season

Don’t you love a good lightning storm? I have always enjoyed storms. My skins prickles up just as it did when I was a child.

From Woody Point, Queensland, Australia you can watch the storms roll in from the west, over Brisbane City and out into Moreton Bay. Positioning yourself out on the jetty to take photographs is a gamble as there is very little shelter. If it pours down, you’re going to get wet.

  2. I don’t mind them and actually like them. If it wasn’t for the fact that my poor dog hates them and is truly frightened by them all would be well. great photos and story

    • My wee dog doesn’t like them either. I can tell when one is coming because the cat goes and hides. She can hear the thunder coming much sooner than I can. Chi (the dog) doesn’t get frightened until it’s right on top of us. I sit on her bed and give her cuddles 🙂

    • Thanks for your kind comments. Here in Queensland permits can be obtained for special events and the fireworks display run by professionals. In other states of Australia you can purchase and use personal fireworks when there are no fire bans on. Silly really because as youngsters we would cross the border and stock up on crackers. There are no border checks or stops. You can also buy them out of the trunk of black marketeer’s cars that hang around industrial estates.. by the way 🙂

  5. I’m scared of lightning if I’m outdoors, but it’s fascinating to watch if one is safe. 🙂

    • That’s smart thinking Margaret. 🙂 When I see how many strikes there are during our storms here, I definitely stay indoors. I can’t resist standing on the balcony to watch them roll in but go inside when they get close. Did I read someone was struck when they were standing inside a shed in Australia recently? A young man I think and he survived.
