Like curtains of water.
We didn’t get any more thunderstorms yesterday, they all passed some distance away but my phone rang every now and again so I know it hit some telephone wires far away. I have an old phone plugged in even if I almost never use it because if I have it plugged in the lightning goes in to it, if I don’t have it the lightning goes out through the telephone jacket in my hallway and in to the wall on the other side. I really should call the telephone company and ask them to remove those lines since I don’t use that phone.
The showers were so strong when the thunder passed that I had two long water falls on each side of my cottage, I couldn’t more than half a meter (much the same in yards) because of the rain coming from the roof. The first thing I did after it had passed was to go outside and check how it looked where I had fixed the roof 🙂 It looks ok 🙂 Normally it gets a bit cooler after a thunder-storm but not yesterday, it got hotter and reached 29C (84,2F). It was awful to go out with my dogs for a walk but they really wanted it, we made it to the bog and then we all wanted to go home again 🙂
Today is much nicer though still rather warm but another cold front will arrive tomorrow and after that temperatures will drop rather much and I think we all need a bit cooler now. I don’t want it to be cold though, a nice, warm and long autumn followed by a short and reasonable warm winter is what I want 🙂
It’s time to make a pot of tea and something to eat. Doors and windows are open all over the cottage and if just the machine from hell doesn’t sound during the night I’ll be happy.
Have a great day!
