Eh, you guys need to come to Texas (or Florida) and watch for a bit. What you're describing is a pretty ordinary storm. We have had them for hundreds of years (long before someone screamed "chemtrails!")
Yes, i did say it was the most lightning ive seen by far, where i live, mmmm, didnt mention any chemtrails though! I was saying it was a weather system coming from the north. They are usually the most unstable resulting in electrical storms. Just a very powerful one about 3 months too early! No conspriacy, just hope it means 35'C days in summer, love the heat, love the tan!
QUOTE: From Byrd
One thing I've noticed is that people who don't work outside in all kinds of weather (or who have long commutes like I do (100 mile round trip)) seem to be unaware of the pattern of weather and stars. In order to know if something is merely a spectacular event (instead of being something really unusual), you need to become familiar with the event itself.
Hmmmm, how do you know i dont WORK outside in all kinds of weather and PLAY outside in all kinds of weather? Ive surfed for over ten years and been watching synoptics, weather charts, barometers and anything else to gain foresight into predicting swell/ wind patterns for about that long. As far as Victoria Australia is concerned, im very confident in my weather predictions, and that storm was very out of character. We usually get a electrical storm as the cold front passes and the weather goes from very hot ie 30'C plus to 18'C in a matter of moments. This storm was pretty much stationary and just kept giving flashes for well over 5 hours. Once a lightning storms passes usually the weather shifts from the warmer north to the cooler south, well, that storm passed us on Sunday and now its Tuesday and the weathers still coming from the north. It's no sci fi experiment, it just means that there is a real lacking of cold pressure pushing up from Antarctica to overpower the north flowing weather system and there has been for over a week now. Another thing ive notice is the bizarre behaviour of the cloud movement. Usually on any given day you can look up and if the clouds are coming from a south westerly direction thats where the weathers coming from. The day before that electrical storm there were different levels of clouds one level coming from the east and one from the north, ive seen it before but never so obviously. Eh' its a funny world!
