Doggie is a term a few of us stormchasers came up with in Darwin a couple of years ago to describe the massive leaping clear air bolts that jump out the side and sometimes near the top of a thunderstorm - mostly from the updraft tower. The shape was like a dogs hind leg aka dogleg and then just is now affectionately know as a doggie!!

TS cool

11.0mm for me from Sat morning until this morning.

Paul, I also took a photo of the square of Pegasus just before we left, but the clouds weren't as picturesque.

Ok here we go...

After spending most of the arvo having a social get-together at Port Wakefield (lol), the late arvo cloud development and Showalter convinced me that this was going to be a nocturnal event only and mainly east of the ranges.
I headed straight across to Accommodation Hill lookout at Truro, getting there just as the first storms started firing up over the ranges.













these bolts in the next pic all went down at the one time... shocked





This truck decided it was going to have a break so I decided to utilise it.... just a pity the storms were moving too far away...



and a cropped version..
