Up until yesterday Perth was having a bit of a dry spell, with only 0.2mm of rain recorded since November last year.
Yesterday the skies opened up and there was a huge storm. Thunder, lightning, hail, power blackouts, strong winds, landslides and flooding. Schools are closed and funerals are cancelled. There is supposed to be bit more of the same today.

I know I should just be happy for the plants and animals.. but as soon as the power came back on I jumped straight onto the Bureau of Meterology site to see what the forecast is for this weekend, hoping that we will be back to drought-like conditions. (sorry Farmers)
It's looking okay for Saturday at this stage. .
Although 25 degrees isn't actually that warm.
And 'Mostly Sunny' doesn't sound as good as plain old 'sunny'
But it's better than being battered by a storm that leaves the city battered and without power.
I am going to be spending the rest of the week stalking the weatherman.
