After really hot weather we’ve been experiencing lately, soft soaking rain over the weekend has been very welcome. The change in the weather started off with a terrific storm on Friday night with lightening and thunder which sounded like a war zone (as is usually the case on the Highveld, and particularly in our area as we are in a lightening belt) Storms accompanied with lightening come up from the South and sweep up over our house on their way North. Hailstorms usually come from the West.
Anyway, after the heavy downpour on Friday night, and one petrified little Jack Russell, who I had to sit with for a couple of hours in the middle of the night on the kitchen floor to calm him down .. and once calm absolutely no way wanted to be alone in the kitchen, even in his crate (his ‘safe place’) and then spent the rest of the night in our bedroom (a habit I really don’t want to start) .. we woke up to glorious soft soaking rain .. the whole weekend! Marvellous !!
Hubby had to release water from the pool before it overflowed ..
It has eased off now – Sunday evening. Getting my washing dry tomorrow would be great (we don’t have a tumble drier), before more rain, hopefully. My garden, and the entire country, need more rain
