a few rumbles this morning and some more this arvo
seems a line of activity is starting up around the Narrogin area and heading SE to go over Cape Riche
however earlier it was going out over the Kalgan, some 20km closer
Pete scored a few pics and we drove up to Woolies Centro in Albany to get some more

as of now ( 4:30 pm ), BoM radar has another cell heading our way possibly going over King River / Kalgan area

thanks guys
actually down here has been I think, quite a dry summer
haven't had the usual Albany drizzle
consequently our weather has been rather boring
most days - partly cloudy, breezy, temps mid-20s, warm nights

though if you ask me, and this is just my opinion
but I think we are having an early autumn

Funny you should say that Nev, the past few days have really had an autumn feel to them.

It has been suggested by many in my circles that an early Autumn/wet is on the way.
Eucs flowering very heavily. The trees are excited this year.
Last time they were this excited, was 1996. A year similar to this one so far. Perth saw Wellington dam overflow.
