EXPECTING A STORM TODAY

YAHOO!!! I love a good storm! If it's really good I plan on taking the kids for a walk in the wind and rain... with NO umbrellas! Should be fun... and it's only water afterall!

I really hope it happens. We were expecting rain yesterday... but it didn't happen, so I ended up watering the lawns again... derrrr. Just my luck the rain will drown them today!

Nothing much planned for today other than that.... as per usual, we shall just have to wait and see what eventuates eh?

Steve starts his new job today... wooo hoo, he is working and earning again.

LOOKING..... LOOKING........ where is the storm???
It's either coming much later in the day... or Jim Hickey (the Weatherman) has got it wrong! It's stinking hot again....
Ever felt like crying... cos people piss you off so much?? Well I'm at that stage..... the teenagers stayed up watching a movie last night... some arsehole spilt a drink on the lounge carpet... and left it for me to clean up this morning! I am hoping like hell it doesn't leave yet another stain on the carpet.. I AM trying to sell this house eh?

Just hung 5 loads of washing on the deck.... JUST IN CASE in rains!

OOO LOOKEEE... we have clouds, and the wind is getting up...
Now isn't this fun? Bet ya can't wait for the next photo... lol.

Did I mention... yesterday DURING the open home, a bloody huge picture on the hallway wall came crashing down? It did, and scraped the wall.. so I have just finished re-painting the wall.... oh god it's so hot, I have sweat pouring down my back.

Still no sign of the storm, just lots of wind...


It's getting hopeful.... but still no rain... 6.30 pm...

STILL...

  6. ohhhh I so love storms :).. hope you get a beauty with lots of thunder, lightning, and rain .. and can't wait to see more photos :)

    having said that, it's horrible the after effects of such good storms is.. eg: wishing everyone well in Queensland and other flood affected areas that are expecting major damage today as the waters peak :(

  12. I also love a good storm! We don't get much rain here in Colorado, but we do get these awesome thunder storms in the summer months. Of course, from late September through May the odds are good any precip will be snow! That's life at 9,000 feet. ;)
