Could do a drive into Waikato or further south on a day when storms might develop. This sat is possible or mid next week looks better.

Go if you can Foggy! I'd go but I'm sort of down here in Chch!!

I'll come up some time though.

Your never too young, well I guess you could be too young but your old enough, I hang round with the likes of John Gaul / Steven Graham and the occasional Bob crowders. lol. Amoungst my other friends of course, nothing wrong with having some more experienced mates.

Cheers

Mid next week could be okay for thunderstorms. May also see some action over the next few days if there is sufficient daytime heating (not loads of middle or low cloud like today).

Heat cloud for Africa down this way, and a little humid, but no rain. Quite stultifying really.

I think Wed will be a case of it chasing us, instead of us chasing it?
