Weather!

This article is dedicated to Anonymous Who Wants a Poppy

We just had weather! It rained! (For Anglo-Saxon readers, it PISSED IT DOWN).

Really weird it were, about 90 minutes ago I noticed some bright flashes in the sky. Looked like lightning. Went out on the balcony, and lightning it was. But no thunder and no water falling out of the sky. I took t'offspring to the local club so I could beat him at pool, and the lightning was getting pretty intense on the way down. Once inside, we heard thunder, and shortly thereafter we heard the drumming of rain on the leaky tin roof. Buckets were brought. The rain stopped after maybe 20 minutes, but the lightning is still buzzing away as I write.

For the record, offspring potted the black early in 2 games, and I managed to do it myself in the other game. Hehehe.

And for general information, who on earth thinks that writing about rain is an interesting thing? Well, anybody who lives in the Arabian Peninsula does. We get rain maybe two or three days a year. Some years we don't get any at all. When it does rain, it tends to be torrential, most older buildings are as porous as colanders, and the roadside drains are clogged with sand. It's all very exciting.
