The weather can change so fast round these parts.

The weather can change so fast around here.

This week saw a fire close to town, only about 26 kilometres from here as the crow flies.  It was started by a farmer using a grinder by all accounts but it quickly spread in the bush country near a beautiful little township of Dungowan just east of here. So far it has burnt out around 1330 ha of land but, cross everything you have two of, no property or people have been at risk.

Tonight however storms swept through the region and I just happen to be out and about.

I took the smoke photo from a hill here in town yesterday afternoon (around 5.30pm). The storm photos were at 7pm tonight and I was a big chicken and didn’t want to go on top of the same hill I took the smoke photos from in a lightning storm. Most are from in the car on the way back into town.

  1. Chicken ..yes. What happened to the fearless chickie babe that stood on top of Moonbi Look out (A bloody huge rock surrounded by a mesh wire fence – like..hey hit me!) during a huge thunderstorm. All because we wanted to get good time laps pics of C H A I N L I G H T N I N G as it ripped across the sky ABOVE our heads. WTF !!!
