Last nights storm (Perth)

Recommended Posts

OMG!! Anyone else kept awake last night with the thunder & lightening?? Ended up with daughter & dog in the bed beside us - hardly got a wink of sleep - though not sure if it was because of the fantastic light display, the noise of the thunder, the noise of the rain on the metal roof or the noise of hubby snoring (he of course slept right through!):arghh:

I don`t mind ours now - I don`t normally notice unless we get a bad storm like last night - when we first moved in though I was aware of every noise.

Hope everything's ok there and not a storm like the Brisbane one where some buildings were damaged... Hope you're not too tired too,

Wasn't it GREAT! From two am onwards, brought the dog inside and she dived under the covers. Did a good job of topping up the pool tho. :smile:

Have to say the thunder & lightening storms are pretty spectacular over here - though the rate the rain comes down can be scary when your house is at the bottom of a slight dip and it starts to pool (saying that ,thanks to having loads of sand in the ground and very little soil it drain away quickly too)

All 4 of us plus a mad boxer slept through it. Given the garden a good water and topped the pool up so all is good.

We live out at The Vines... heard only a few cracks of thunder.... No rain for us... unfortunately!!

 

I was really praying for rain.. as it hasn't rained here in almost 6 weeks.

It inda ent over Rockingham and then upto the Hills around Rolleystone way. I think Perth itself didn't get much of the storm activity.

It had rained a lot up here NOR as when I went out walking at 5.30 the roads were soaked. Can't comment on the thunder as we didn't hear any.

Hi NB! LOL I can`t believe you all slept through it! The lightening kept lighting up our room - it was like trying to sleep in a bloody disco!The dog was barking and scratching at the kitchen door, so she ended up in our room too.

Not sure how much thunder and lightening there was up our way but it had rained a lot as the roads were very wet when I went out for my walk. When we lived in Canada we slept through Nova Scotias Hurricane Juan in 2003, it was the worst storm they had in 50 years, people were killed, homes lost and we slept through it!
