Thor seems to be upset today.
We’re having a thunderstorm here right now and it’s somewhere between fierce and half furious 🙂 To be honest there aren’t that many lightnings but those that are, are both huge and sounds a lot. My sister gave me a link that shows lightning more or less when it happens and where too: Real time Lightning Map (just click on the red text and a new window should open up). I do think however it only shows those hitting the ground and not the ones that goes between clouds because we had a gigantic one passing over the entire sky but nothing showed on the map. My little cottage trembled like Hector does when lightning goes around. I’m not sure if You’ll see the area where I live in when You open up the site. I live between the two big lakes here but this map shows the entire world so just zoom out and it will be easier to find the place where You live.
It started already at 5am so we never had any early morning walk today, in fact we almost didn’t get a walk at all, either it rained or the thunder came closer, strangely enough it didn’t do both, that only happened recently. I don’t mind thunder as long as it rains at the same time, dry thunder is never good when it is as dry as it is here. I’ve placed my orchids on the entrance stairs, they love to stand outside while it is raining. They look like they all are dying so I hope this might make them happier.
I managed to do the laundry between thunderstorms but I doubt it will dry even if I have it hanging beneath a roof on my patio. I just looked outside and it looks like fog is filling up the area closer to the big road. I hope it comes here too after the thunder has passed, I really didn’t get any good photos today or yesterday :-)All dogs are more or less stressed by this and all have started to fart really bad 🙂 🙂 🙂 Nova smell so bad that I had to open up the kitchen door, it’s impossible to stay here if I don’t manage to get some fresh air in to the cottage 🙂
I’ve just looked at the weather predictions and it looks as if we’ll have thunder coming and going for the next five hours, the temperature will rise to 30C (86F) but the humidity will sink to a rather low level. The last thing I doubt though since all the water that now have fallen upon us most likely will start to evaporate as soon as the sun will show itself again. We’ll have much the same weather tomorrow and I had hoped it would cool down considerable since it is my first day back at work after the vacation. It is warm enough as it is beside a huge hot washing machine and a huge hot oven 🙂
The thunder has calmed down and I hope that fog will move towards us too, it’s so thick now that I can’t see the mountain any longer, still it’s a bit too far to walk to since one never knows when the thunder will return again. I really don’t want to be caught by it out there 🙂 So until I know better I’ll just have a cup of tea and enjoy this last day before reality hits me in my face again.
Have a great day!
