Summer Storm Just Minutes Ago!!


Friday 20 June, 2014 by Uncle Spike

We just a load of wet stuff fall from the sky!

Quite bizarre it was too. We are well into our long hot dry 6 month summer, and suddenly it clouded over, went very dark, then all hell let loose.

Didn’t manage to capture the thunder/lightening I’m afraid, as a) I didn’t have the camera to hand, and b) with Cousin Spike Jnr off school for 3 months now, I took the opportunity to share a daytime summer with him on the big covered balcony – until that got too flippin’ soggy and we had to retreat indoors and batten down the hatches!








And then it was suddenly all over
The sun was back out and it started to heat right back up again!




At least I wont have to spend 2 hours watering this evening 🙂
