summer storms

we've been getting some brilliant storms lately. real, proper thunderstorms.

normally, we get this wimpy sort-of drizzle rain. you know, miserable, it's cold, you don't need an umbrella unless you wear to that kind of rain.

last week there was a lovely storm that decided to erupt right as we were due to cycle home. once you're cycling in the rain, you're wet, so you might as well keep going. it can be quite fun!

though, the hail probably won't be very much fun. it's a good thing we missed it.

just a word of advice. when finding a puddle... no, i don't mean puddle. i'm talking a flash flood sort of lake that has appeared out of nowhere... don't go through it slowly. the cold water that comes up to your knee will feel just icky. you've got to blaze through it as fast as you can.

Hello Abby, Thanks so much for visiting my blog and becoming a follower! Sssshhhh. Tell no one, but I rather like this dramatic weather we're having in ye olde London towne. You see some gorgeously dramatic skies.
