afternoon excitement

jan 12 storm front

Storm approaching around 5pm caused no little excitement in this house, with lightning, thunder, hail, wind and around 70mm of rain in a very short period of time. And I think we were on the edge of it!

(FYI, that blue colour under the storm on the right hand side, it isn't blue sky. That is rain and hail, and gosh when you see that coming you start taking the clothes off the line, battening down the hatches and getting yourself inside pretty smartly!)

  2. 70 mil - I'm very envious!
    We knew we weren't suffering through this heat for nothing, though we had a cool change yesterday and no rain to report as yet. I'm told it's coming.
