Rain

We had some unusual weather last week – it rained for several days. The rain isn’t the unusual part, well, perhaps it is as this was the first significant rain in over 150 days. It’s the several days’ part. Our rain usually comes from thunderstorms, which tend to blow into the area accompanied by high winds, drop an inch or so of water (2cm+) and then blow away leaving blue skies and sunshine. Those thunderstorms pictured in the last post just blew in and out as usual, but we did end up with three days of all clouds. The end result was a total of about 2cm of water overall (about ¾ inch), not much in the rest of the world but it met our October quota.
This is what it looked like out in Henderson


The clouds do provide for some nice sunsets.

What an interesting place you live in. I just live in suburbia. Houses, streets, cars, people. Boring stuff really. And when it rains, well, it just rains. No crazy blooming rush to change the landscape. Although there is a little creek at the entrance to our 'burb that makes a lovely little waterfall till the waters all run off...

I do enjoy the smell of the damp earth when it first starts to rain. :)

One of the things I love about Adelaide is the cloud formations we get here. Being from Qld, well, it's just clouds there. But here, they are lovely and do provide some love sunsets out over the ocean. Love these pics, Joe.
