It looks like there was an impressive lightning display with this event.

I hope that, going by the order of the photos, you're not suggesting that the lightning is the end result of the outflow blowing through Nick's hair??  ;)

Regards,

Geoff

Haha you bet Geoff.

It was an excellent display of lightning as one would expect with an upper trough.

Good to see SW flow returning but the heat is incredible. High bases mean that basically LP's are the only items on the cards.
