Perth was hit by a huge thunderstorm yesterday afternoon, but then, if your from Perth and reading this then you would already know - and I'm glad you have power to your computer. Apparently 150,000 people lost power; power poles and trees were toppling everywhere, windows were destroyed and huge mudslides swamped houses.Literally millions of dollars of damage occurred in the space of half an hour.
All of the dogs I have owned hate storms, they hide under beds and wimper until it is done, but not Indy the Adventurer! He is one tough little pup. As I watched him bounce from window to window, trying to get a better view of the downpour, I swear I almost heard him declare "BRING IT ON!"
We didn't do too badly at my house. The golf ball sized hail did manage to shoot through the glass louvers in my back room causing a minor, glass ridden flood. Finger's crossed that The Boy's stereo equipment, that was by the window, still works. We were lucky enough to keep the lights on, but not so fortunate with the power to the appliances, which is still down. How am I blogging you ask??
