Stoooorms! [28 Nov 2005|05:32am]

We got excellent thunderstorms on Saturday night! They were going OFF! They were around us at about 8pm, but we didn't go anywhere to see them, and they eventually moved south. Then I went outside again at 10pm, and they were back down at the beach. So Dan and I grabbed the camera and went to the beach. Sat there for about 20 minutes, the lightning was huge! Then it started raining, so we jumped in the car and drove about 5 mins to Seascapes and sat up on the hill at the beach in the car while it absolutely pissed down! The storm was getting bigger and bigger, and the lightning was bloody close, too. Was awesome watching the forks of lightning touch the ground somewhere in Mandurah. We drove to another beach carpark, and it started hailing a bit, while still belting down with rain. Then after that, it settled down for about 10 minutes, so we went back to Seascapes and took some photos of the lightning off the coast. Then it started building up again. It seemed that every time it settled down, it just built up again 10 minutes later.
So we headed home. When we got here, we started looking at the photos of the lightning on the computer. My brother was on his computer, which is right next to the back door, so he could see outside. Anyway.. he let out this almighty "WOAH!", and as he said that, there was this DEAFENING *BOOOOOOOOOOOM*. It scared the absolute fuck out of us all, coz none of us saw the lightning except Aaron coz we had our backs to the door. I walked outside and pissed myself laughing, coz all the birds from the river were up and out of there because of the thunder! HAHAHH. All you could hear were heaps of birds squealing as they flew away.
So the storm had built up again and was on top of us. Few more big booms before it moved south. Then it just sat south of us for hours! I sat on mum and dad's bed in their bedroom, and looked out their big window, which faces south.. so I had a perfect view of it all :D

Excellent night indeed! Then I wake up this morning, and the sky's all clear and it's bloody hot! What's with THAT!

We didn't get many photos because it rained, but the ones we did get were a bit blurry because Dan didn't have his camera set up properly. But I'll put some up anyway.

I looooove lightning :DCollapse )

Well, I'm sorry I haven't had time to update, but I haven't had time really. I took Monday off work, just so I could stay home and watch the storm. Rhi and I went to the river and got caught in the rain, so we sat on a table that was sheltered and watched it. I miss storms, should be winter all year round! :D

It's raining atm, and the wind is picking up, there was lightning in the distance when I left work, but I always seem to miss it! =/

Next storm Cindy, and I'm draggin you to the beach, and when u went, WHERES MY INVITE?HUHHUHUH.. :D hahaha. i dont sleep anymore, weather seems more interesting :D

I thought I'd update this, seeing as no one else will! *looks at fr0glet*
We've had some pretty nice storms over the last few weeks. Nothing really big, except for about 3 weeks ago, when we had severe thunderstorms. They were great!

We had a thunderstorm earlier tonight, and they have a severe weather warning issued for tomorrow. It's going to slowly get worse over night, then by about 8:00am tomorrow morning we should have winds up to 100km/hr, with thunderstorms and hail throughout the day. Then from about 5:00pm-8:00pm, they are forecasting the winds to pick up to around 100km/hr again. Should be great! I can't wait! :P

Also, something that's quite weird, is we have had quite a few incidents with tornados lately. Over the last 2 months Perth has had at least 3 occasions involving tornados. Now, they're nothing like they get in America, but more like their little ones (F1 or whatever it is). About a month ago, we had a very stormy few days, and over 1 night we had at least 30 tornados ranging from Perth to Bunbury! That's outrageous! They absolutely belted a suburb south of Perth, and also Bunbury was pretty badly damaged. Definitely scenes you would see in movies, not here in WA!
I'm blaming global warming. It's screwing with our weather patterns! It's not just Perth that's had unusual weather, The whole eastern coast has too! It's madness!

Anyway. Here's some photos from the night we had severe thunderstorms.

Lightning!!!Collapse )

Right. So we didn't get those thunderstorms the other night.
But they've forecasted them again tonight with this front that's going through. At the moment we have fairly strong winds and heavy rain.
All I want is a thunderstorm!

Supposed to be expecting some wildish weather tonight. They've forecasted a severe weather warning, as there is supposed to be heavy rain, thunderstorms and localised severe wind gusts. All we've got at the moment is rain pretty much. They forecasted this last night but we got shit all wind and no thunderstorms at all. Jibbed >:(
If I don't get a thunderstorm tonight I'm gonna be pissed! :P

Had some heavy rain yesterday. The front started coming in at about 8:30am, then by 11:00am it was in full force. And it just didn't stop! Constantly pouring from 11:00am-12:15pm. Mandurah ended up with a total of 40mm of rain, while Perth had 27mm.
No thunderstorms though :( I want a proper lightning show god dammit!

Okay, so no one has posted in here for ages. So I thought I'd put an end to it =P
The other night (Tuesday night to be persist) we had a little thunderstorm.. with big LOUD thunder.
I went to bed at 10:00pm. Next thing I know, I get woken up at 3:20am to a nice big *BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!!!$#!@* and that was about it. Apparently there was lightning, but I missed it unfortunately. It must've been huuge for it to make that noise.
But yeah. that was it, so I went back to bed =P
The end. :)

Well, I've been on holidays for the past 2 weeks. Went down south to Hamelin Bay (about 4 hours from Perth). Was good for the first week, second week got a bit boring.
Usually we have some pretty wild weather down there. Thunderstorms are usually pretty frequent.. but this year - we only had 1. And even then I was in bed so didn't see anything apart from the lightning lighting up my tent. But it was good never-the-less.
Waiting for another storm to hit Mandurah. Hurry up winter!

Thunder and lightning tonight was unbelievable!
The first one was the bestest. HUGE flash of lightning, I thought it was aaron, 'cause the patio lights were on and he had a torch in his hand. But STRAIGHT after was this deafening *CRACK CRACK* *BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM* the windows were rattling and all! Any louder and they would've shattered. Charlie's brother was driving over here when it happened, it happened when he was on Murdoch drive (about 1 min drive away), the lightning hit a tree which is what made it so loud. Fark it was awesome.
It's all settled now. I want moree =(
