Storms of 21 Feb 2007
Had the day off work. Headed down to Gouldburn after seeing weather radar activity down that way.
The main visible feature was the huge cell/anvil in the distance, crossing over Canberra reg. I realised I
wasn't going to catch up with that one so from Gouldburn I travelled NW towards Crookwell to close in
on some growing cells. The 2 cells grew and started to fire with CC’s and GC’s shortly after my arrival.
After a phone call to Jimmy D. to get an update on the radar, I travelled ~ 5 km NE out of town to a clear
area and spent the next ~45 mins capturing zaps. I saw some excellent strikes, then moved further a few
more kms to get out of the rain and get more zaps. After a VERY long timed trip home via the Wombyan
Caves Road (DREADFUL !!). A late arrival home, but otherwise a good day.
