A stormy Outdoor Wednesday

Welcome to my Stormy Outdoor Wednesday Post!

All of the pictures below come from The Courier Mail, here!







The Summer storm season has started early in Queensland and boy we had a huge storm last night. The storm brought strong winds, hail and power outages.Earlier on in the day, it was so hot in parts of Brisbane that some train tracks buckled.It looks like it is going to continue to be a hot week with temps reaching around 32 degrees (90 F)...Oh dear....it is not even Summer yet!

I filmed a little bit of the storm for you to have a look at. I have only just worked out how to do this so it only goes for about 30 seconds. It is very dark but you can hear the thunder.




Thank you to Susan from A Southern Daydreamer for hosting today's Outdoor Wednesday. I hope there will be some pictures of snow for me to look at over there-it might help me cool down a little!


Best wishes,
Natasha In Oz

  7. ooh that's some storm. The video was neat to listen to. The Dog Dude heard it though and just walked past the door. Uh-oh, storm issues. :) He's back in the other room, so maybe not. I forget your seasons are opposite ours. We had a very hot and dry summer here - worst drought ever. Stay out of the lightning. I've been near ...really near ... 2 strkes. uh-uh. (No). Later, Jenn

  9. Last nights storm sure was a doozy Natasha. We were at a school Presentation Night and the kids were pretty excited by the thunder and lightening.
    Hope you weren't affected by the power cuts.

  19. Those pics are AWESOME! There's nothing I like more than a big ol thunderstorm. Always have. Here in Indiana, it's cold, cloudy and rainy. I'd take a 90 degree day over this stuff anytime! Take care, Jill

  22. I'm afraid I'm with John Ruskin! Those photos remind me of drinking west coast coolers on the catamarans at Mooloolaba beach and watching the lightning out over the sea... Sigh! WONDERFUL!!!
