Electrical Storm 2012

On the day of Monday 29th October 2012 the morning started with thunder and lightning followed by an intense hail storm with gale force winds, followed by intense rain.  This squall lasted for about 20 minutes from 7.50 - 8.10am.  For the remainder of the day we had cloud and rain and gusting winds.

Then around 7pm had a lovely sunset in the west as you can see from this photo.  At the same time a massive and ferocious electrical storm started to rage in a large cloud bank to the east over the Two Brothers.  There was no sound of thunder, just a continuous electrical storm that raged for over 4 hours in our sight and then apparently moved northerly into the Marine Park.  It was impossible to photograph the electrical storm, so Dave took some video footage which you can see below.
