Wordless Wednesday: Rainbow between heavy rain

Silent Sunday: Bad weather last week


Last week we had bad weather. The wind blew at 120km p hour, day and night. It rained ongoing. Last Thursday when I went home the rain stopped but the clouds rolling nearer and nearer frightened me. The photo doesn’t show how black these clouds were. Lucky for me I turned off to the right to where I live.

This weekend we had lovely sunshine and no rain.

No use at all, wind blowing at 150 km ph and hard rain pouring down!
