Even tho hector is the worlds most reknown thunderstorm with quote 'parts of the forest sometimes dissapearing into the system'... I prefer to keep my focus on the savage squall lines inland that do plenty of damage.. Hec is by no means boring, but just a bit unaccessable, and not to mention, not present at the moment.. Has someone well travelled fooled you into thinking the weather here is boring ? :p
