Sydney's early summer storms

We have had some early thunderstorms this year, normally we tend to get them around February(for the OTDE crew this is obviously Obama's fault, me I am leaning toward those melting icebergs)

I have not up loaded too many as I usually run foul of the uploading data limit.My photography is pretty limited, it was more impressive live.

Enjoy.

Abbott done it.
Gees I am glad I headed south when I did. Just in time for Hobart's winter during summer.
These pollies have a lot to answer for!

So far every night for the last week has been like this, not usual Sydney weather for this time of year.

Andy,
It was bad enough in Sydney when we had the strong westerlies a few weeks ago.
It looks like the storms have been pretty severe.
I got down to Hobart in time for their winter in summer.
I hope when I come back after Xmas it has warmed up a bit.

Cheers
Benn

Good pics Andy. It`s not a new phenomenon, as a kid I remember thunderstorms like clockwork every afternoon, for a week. But this is predicted to continue into next weekend, that`s unusual, the result of an unfortunate combination of weather systems. Sure don`t want my house or car trashed like our TF friends in Brisbane,hope you are getting on top of the damage. Stay safe.

No Bruce not an IG.
