Aug 13 weather pics
Looking north, just waiting for F1 to finish. Wind is still from the south; it will switch to north halfway through landings - always fun for those with low energy. Lots of quite impressive lightning, particularly to the left of the picture. It's much darker and more menacing than the picture looks...
Turn 180 degrees - and it's a different sky! These photos were 10 seconds apart. If the thunderstorms had slid a bit south, it would have been a totally different day for the late starters.
We had gust fronts from the CBs to the north come through on occasion while waiting - 10 crew cars are waiting for their gliders to return just in the middle of this.
