Today we planned to take a day off and go to the beach or do something else vacation-like.

Instead we stayed at home.

Early in the morning I woke up because of a very bad lightning and thunderstorm.
The roling thunder came from everywhere and I even felt the bed shake.

Right when I slipped to the toilet, the girls and one of the boys were out of bed too.
It was like bombs fell on our house.

The rain came down in terrible amounts.

One way or another we went to bed again and fell asleep. We were so very tired.

At 11.30 we heard on the radio that already so much rain had fallen that it equalled the regular total amount of the month of august.

So we were OK that the trip has been called off.

Right now we're sure twice the amount of the month came down.
The garden is one terrible muddy mess and I'm sure we won't harvest carrots this year.

But that's only minor considering that all over the country houses are flooded, tunnels are waterways and even a dike broke.

It feels like we won't have vacation at all this year.
But we've had sensation.

Tonight more rain will fall and right now thunder and lightning are dominating the weather again.
