just a note to say i havent been about as we had the biggest storm i have ever lived through yesterday..
it came out of nowhere.. and although it was forecast it was so hot and sunny yesterday that we just thought yeah right..
they been telling us we would have rain since xmas and it hasnt happened..
one moment its cooking hot.. next the sky was black as ink and then wow.. wind and rain but the biggest damn hailstones i have ever seen.. smashed 3 of our windows.. and did major damage all over the city..
some roofs were ripped off in some areas.. and trees came down.. big trees.. lightening hit lots of trees too
we had flash flooding everywhere as well..
the metro area here is built on a clay base.. and coz we havent had any rain at all since november 2nd.. its very hard and water takes ages to drain through it and soften in.. so the flash flooding happened quick
power went out and it was like night at 4pm.. usually its 7.30 or so before it gets that dark.. i havent ever seen my city look that black.. we had no streetlights or traffic lights and it was kinda creepy.. so was sleeping in a black house with broken windows..lol
we had no phones and even a cell tower went near us.. so i had no cell phone either..as i couldnt get a signal till this morning..
and even now its dropping in and out.. we just got our power back after 20 hours without
although it was storming.. it was hot as hell and humid and we had no airconditioning of course as no power
altogether a shitty night.. cept the rain part was good to have..
and we have similar forecast for next 24 hours.. so i dont know if i will be here or not..
