    default Stormy Weather on the Pacific Highway

    Post by Joy on Mon 02 Feb 2015, 1:43 pm

    When driving south, on the Pacific Highway towards Taree, we encountered some dreadful driving conditions. Lovely & sunny when we left home but awhile later on the highway we drove into torrential rain which was so bad it was a whiteout. Many cars had pulled off the highway but this was just as dangerous as you could not see anything at all & certainly not if another vehicle was also parked on the side of the road where you were aiming for. Bang, crash!! This was nerve-wracking white knuckle stuff & was repeated again further down the highway. Both times it lasted for many kilometres. Strangely, there were short gaps where the road was bone dry.

    These pics were taken after these episodes as I did not want to distract Bruce by taking pics while he was concentrating on his driving. As can be seen there is still stormy weather ahead.

    A short break with some sun but those lovely white innocent-looking fluffy clouds are thunderheads.
