751 – Rain

We went through a dry spell. Not sure how long it lasted, but it was quite a few day. Enough to leave the grass parched & scorched. It really started raining yesterday. It was spitting a bit during the day, I managed to get out for my morning walk, but lunchtime was written off as it was raining, but I had a dental appointment in the afternoon and no car so I had to walk. Luckily, it didn’t rain.

Today was similar, morning walk was fine. Lunch time was a no-go as it was raining quite heavily. When I went out to top up the bird feeders I noticed that the grass was looking almost normal. It felt a bit strange to walk on, almost rough, like it had been burnt – which in a way, it has.

The rain really came down last night, and I am reasonably convinced that a lightning bolt grounded somewhere near the house. The flash was very bright, and the thunder was like a gunshot going off. It made me jump, and terrified the cat. The rain was coming down as well, overwhelming the guttering, and drumming on the conservatory roof, so hard that I thought it was either leaking, or in danger of crashing down. Of course it didn’t.

The dredgning in Haslar Marina has started. I think the lightship is due to be moved soon, that will be unusual as it is such a fixture. I’ll keep an eye on the dredging.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
