And The Rain Came Tumbling Down

Angus & I had a meeting at his high school this afternoon. When we left the sky was blue and the sun was shining brightly. I even thought about how its a shame I cannot wear sunglasses any more because I need to wear my glasses while driving. Before our meeting finished it started raining. Not just a little bit of rain it bucketed down! The kid of rain you have when you get flash flooding!

Angus & I were standing under a veranda waiting for the rain to ease up so we could make a run for the car. Would you believe we waited for 15 minutes before we could make our attempt? The rain was that heavy at one stage Angus & I couldn't hear each other properly.

While we waitied I took a few shots. It's a shame that my phone isn't waterproof or I would've taken some snaps of the car park. It was almost totally under water. The kerb was over flowing it looked like a waterfall.

I was very careful driving home. The water was splashing up everywhere. Some parts of the road near our home were completely covered in water. I had a feeling they would be so I was extra careful.

I know we needed some rain to help cool things down but I honestly didn't think we would get as much as we did. I have to admit that even though we got soaked making our way to the car that the water felt nice and cool. It reminded me of when I used to live in Darwin. While it rained everything felt good but as soon as the rain stopped it got all hot & humid again. Just like it is right now (o_0)

Wow! No sign of rain on this side of the city. I thought it was sticky enough here, but you must feel twice as bad there now.

I don't feel that bad at the moment Vireya. I'm still a little bit damp from that run to the car :)
