The 28th day of December 2016 was a day to remember.
Around 6pm a big storm cell passed through our area. Along with the strong winds was a lovely big lot of rain.
54mm in 20 minutes kind of rain.
Hubby was up on the roof fixing our TV aerial from the previous nights strong winds, when he called to me "to come take a look at the weather approaching, and bring your camera".
I am not one for heights, but I put on my big girl boots and bravely climbed the ladder and up onto the roof.
The view was amazing from there, and here are the pictures to prove it.
We have a new flag up now. The winds ripped this one to threads.
Worried about her mum.
We had planned a night out to dinner, but the storm delayed us a little. We did head off in the commodore, but didn't get far down the road when had to turn around and come back to get the four wheel drive. Going down the road we couldn't see in front of us and although we did pull off the road, we didn't feel that it was too safe to do so in case we sank and became bogged.
So home we came.
The rain was so heavy and the roads flooded quickly so there really was no option but to take our other vehicle instead.
We had just pulled up in our driveway, when this happened!

This is what we found when arriving at the hotel where we were dining. It had subsided quite a bit by the time we got there.
This is the main shopping area.
After all the wind, rain with a touch of hail, and dinner, the sky turned into another beautiful sight, especially the sunset.
Then it was gone.
I heard the storm was pretty wide spread.
Did you get it in your neck of the woods?
