it was a dark and stormy night
After a very hot day on Tuesday, the storm moved in again. We missed the worst here on Monday night but it was a cracker of a storm on Tuesday afternoon. It arrived almost without warning and lights came on everywhere. Huge claps of thunder and I wondered if my computer was OK. For very many years I've been used to the computers in the house being on a separate circuit to anything else and equipped with heavy duty surge protector. However, all seems well.
I set my camera to the multiple photos setting and snapped half a dozen in a few seconds as I moved across the screen. The last shows how heavy the rain was, particularly when the time is taken into account.
Things cleared up for a while but we had it return twice but not with such severity.
