We had the longest day of the year and it looked like we were in the middle of autumn.
In fact, apart from a few days in spring with wonderful weather, we've had grey days and rain, just like the past 3 years.
The feel of summer is far away.
We had another rainstorm a few days ago and a new one was forecasted for today.
Code orange they called it.
So we had everybody in at home in time for the bad weather.
All we got was a thundershower with lots and lots of rain.
I loved the sound of the thunder.
It came from far, roled over our heads and faded away.
Last week a house was hit by lightning on the roof, a few hundred metres away from us, so we got the kids down. Just in case.
Well, we only had an electricity disturbance which could be solved within a few minutes, so we were lucky.
But it was dark early in the evening due to the thick layer of dark clouds.
No longest day for us.
