Overnight Thunderstorm

We have just experienced our first thunderstorm for the season and what a beauty. The lightning, thunder and rain lasted a couple of hours. You have to hear the noise of the thunder rolling through the mountains to believe it!

I just happened to take these photos of the river a couple of days ago. It was a lovely still morning and the river was quite dry.

This morning we have awoken to a gloomy day and brown river that has risen quite considerably, over a metre at least. Not sure how much rain we have had but it must be quite a lot.

Perhaps it is the beginning of the season changing.

  1. Wow…what a change!

    • Yes, even the noise level has risen.

  2. I love those thunder storms that roll through the mountains. It is amazing how quickly the river comes up.

    • Yes, you wouldn’t want to be afraid of the thunder and lightning.

  3. Send that water over here, chops again tonight, yum yum

    • Already the river is dropping so think it will subside very quickly.
