If I'm in with the sane, does that make me insane?

Didn't get any lightning shots because it was mostly intra cloud, though we had a nice crawler and CG strike while corepunching it. Saw my first west coast waterspout though :)

Plenty of cloud to cloud visible from back inland further. Looked great.

It's been a great many years since I've seen lightning like that. It was like a Kimberley monsoon

Looks like a few more punchy cells approaching the coast. Still a way out though.
Not like what we saw earlier.

The rain has given the whole of Mid West and Sth West WA a soak.

A day of flat rainbows. Well around lunch time anyway. My theory is sun high in sky, the high angle of the sun, causes only part of the rainbow to be seen. Lower angle of the sun, exposes the fuller arc of the rainbow. Love to hear thoughts.

I concur...noticed the same.

The centre of the rainbow (the middle around which the circular bow forms) must be directly opposite the sun - that is, draw a line from the sun behind you to the back of your head, then continue that line and you hit the centre of the rainbow. That means it is a unique rainbow for each person (nawwww!). I'm pretty sure that's right (from an (ex-)physics teacher :) ).

Now that reminds me, I saw something unusual today. It was like a rainbow but it was really just a mash of colour in no particular pattern shining out from a column of heavy rain in the distance. Made me really look anyway.

Went and checked the rain gauge today and found 11 mm in it. This is rainfall for 2 days as I forgot to empty it yesterday before I went to tennis, I was expecting 2 or 3 mm.
