When you live in a desert the sound of lightning and thunder is amazing and it is only topped by one noise and that is the sound of falling rain.
Last night we had a massive storm, the wind howled and the lightning and thunder was deafening. I got up to close windows and standing halfway across our kitchen I was being hit by rain – so strong that the wind was.
Checking my rain gauge this morning, we had had 5mm – I am sure more as the rain was being blown horizontally. This is the most rain we have had in 1 storm this season so far. May it continue.
