Thunder and Lightning
What a deluge last night! I don't know the amount, but after watching a lightning show and listening to the low murmuring of distant thunder for over a half hour, I fell asleep only to be awoken by the sound of the heavens being split asunder. We had to get up and close windows as the downpour came. It was rather violent and hopefully, nobody was caught out at that late hour in the storm.
The storm was good however, as the heat and dry has been terrible for lawns, gardens and crops. Still overcast today, so hopefully we get a bit more rain before the weekend.
