Wow we were just hit by a huge thunderstorm. It was awesome, amazing, and a little bit scary. It was nothing like the one that swept through Canberra City last night, but incredible just the same.
I love thunderstorms. This was intense, the wind was blowing so hard I had to lean all my weight on my front door to get it closed. Outside we couldnt see the end of the driveway the rain was like a solid wall of water. Imagine a fog closing in, but it is completely made of water that lashes down.
It has passed now, from tempestuous to tranquil in forty minutes. Nature is quicksilver in her moods. Just a week ago we were bemoaning our dead lawn, now it is lush and green again.
Here are some photos taken in the city last night, I dont know who took them, it wasnt me, so if they belong to you let me know if you want me to take them down.
