Boom Crash Opera

Rainy day lily. February, 2005.

Last night we had a tropical storm of epic proportions, a regular boom crash opera as one of my favourite expressions goes. As I write this another storm is rolling in, and it's dark as twilight and I can hear the thunder in the distance. It was so noisy with torrential rain and thunder last night that I hardly got any sleep, but this morning the garden was looking well quenched after the heat of the past few days.

I love storms. When I was a kid I used to stand on the front verandah and watch them with my mum, although we didn't get as many electrical storms in Adelaide as we do in Sydney, which is more tropical. Here comes the rain again.
