Thunder & Lightening.........very, very frightening....

Good Grief - it is RAINING!

Now you may think this a very ordinary thing to do but NOT in Zambia at this time of the year! The seriously hot season (October, fondly known as suicide month!) has not even started although it has been very hot and still the past two days. The sky is black, I can hear thunder rolling overhead and the wind is blowing the palm trees in the garden all over the place. The rain bucketed down quite briefly but it was hard, serious rain and, judging from the wind, is still out there somewhere!

This is a BAD thing for the country! I fear it heralds either a drought or far too much rain for the season ahead. It just isn't NORMAL for the time of year and I can see no good coming of it.


Who said global warming is a myth?

Undoubtedly the universe is unfolding as it should. We haven't had rain her all month. Lots of wind today.

We had terrible weather this summer, only a few days with hot weather but lots of rain and now autumn is started and back all these rains. Hopefully winter will be not too strong. Previous year we had a mild winter with higher temperatures than normal.

Let everything come on time : cold in winter and summerweather during the summer.
