We've been asking for rain, after not having any for 5 months, and it certainly came yesterday ..... by the bucket load.  A massive storm front hit Perth at 5pm and caused absolute havoc in the city and suburbs ....
flash flooding, 160,000 homes without power, lightning damage, hail stones the size of golf balls, cars and windows broken, car accidents, traffic lights down, trains at a standstill, air flights cancelled ...
what a night!!!!  Not one I want to have again for a long time.
We didn't have any damage ourselves, but it threw everything into chaos.  Fortunately it went as fast as it came and today is blue skies and heavy humidity.  Wonder if its a warning of the winter weather to come ... hope not!

  1. I can't believe the size of those hail stones - I'm so sorry you've had such terrible weather and do hope it doesn't return. xx
