The Storm...
Last night there was a horrible storm here, with tonnes (literally) of rain, and lots of wind that blew everything around in the backyard. It also knocked out the power sometime around 5:30 A.M. You don't really realise how much you depend on electricity, until you don't have any. But thank goodness that the hot water heater is natural gas powered! Even though the house was cold, I could have a hot shower before school.
Around noon, the sun came out and the sky turned a glorious blue colour. It was really amazing after the torrential downpour we had last night. But what was even cooler was looking south-east, and seeing the dark black clouds rolling into the tree covered mountains.
