Hey Guess what!

Last night it rained and rained and rained, not to mention the thunder and lightning that seemed to be non stop for about 12 hours. Poor suzy the cat was most unhappy, she's never liked storms and makes a sad little mew noise as she tries to sit under your pillow. Needless to say we did not sleep outside last night. The plants all got a really good watering and hopfully the water supplies have been topped up. We have had no heavy rain since 31st May,just a couple of very light showers and as I said before July was the hottest in 40 years.
The rain was not to sandy so cleaning up will not be to bad, hope everyone remembers NOT to use loads of water to clear away the sandy deposits. Much easier to leave it to dry them sweep it away.
The pool was nice and cool this morning, this time of year it can get really really warm in there which is not so refreshing.
Rain also effected the airport with some flights delayed and others diverted. We flew in in a thunder storm once,not a lot of fun. Still more rain forecast for today which is good news for the water supplies and the plants.

I was looking forward to a good storm and we got about half an hour of so, so rain - and that was it. I could see the lightening over the mountains but it missed us.
