Dancing in the rain #37

Yesterday it rained so hard.. so hard, it was unbelievable!!

After 15 minutes of pouring down we had more water inside the house than in Holland would rain in a day! And it rains a lot there!

In no time the whole garden was flooded and you could hardly see the difference between the pool and the grass.

Not only was it raining but thunder and lightning as well, and I am pretty sure that this time we didn't get hit by lightning but our neighbors got hit, it was such a hard BOOOOM!

Inside the girls were trying to keep the water at bay but it came down so hard and the wind blew so fast into the direction of the house that it just came under the doors. Not enough towels to keep it dry!

Then when at least the thunder and lightning was over but still raining the girls wanted to go outside and dance and play in the rain. I had no objection, as long as I could stay in :-)

At first a bit cold, but after just a few seconds they were having a blast! Look how high the water is, the garden is flooded! And the umbrella was knocked down by the strong winds.

JJ wanted to do a cartwheel in the water...

While Jezz is just running around and laying on the grass just enjoying the water, only children can have so much fun in the rain!! They even jumped into the pool with their clothes on... the thrill they got from that, it was just so fun to watch them having a blast!

They asked me to call their friends so they could join the fun, but I don't think those moms would have appreciated my invitation... LOL! They probably would think what kind of eccentric family we are... So they enjoyed the splashing and running around in the rain just the 2 of them.

When I look now into my garden, you have no clue that it rained so much yesterday. The sun is shining again, everything is dried up.... just another normal summer day!

Have a Marvellous Monday!

Living in Miami we get that tropical rain everyday in the summer. It is amazing how fast it comes down. The neighbourhood floods and then voila, the sun comes out again and the rain is gone. If you didn't know better you would think you had dreamed it.

Hope everything in your house is OK.

Same in South Africa, summer time = rain time. Winter we have no rain for 5-6 months.
