Hello from Western Australia, a state that has crazy weather at the moment. We've just had three days of thunderstorms with amazing lightning displays and lots of rain that is falling at the wrong time of the year. The farmers are trying to get their harvest in and now it's all wet and damp which does nothing for the quality of the grain.
Genevieve and I went to a nearby large town to do some errands and grocery shopping for Mum on Thursday. We got caught up in a bit of the storm and on the way home took the following photos.
As we were driving along the road two Wedge Tail eagles flew up. By the time I had stopped the car they had flown up high so these are the best photos I could get.
As harvesting had come to a stop because of rain, my brother decided to do some sheep work which Genevieve and I helped with. Below are some photos of work in progress with my brother, nephew and Genevieve.
Last night we had the mother of all thunderstorms which just happened to coincide with my other nephew and cousin playing in their band at a gig my cousin had organised. They also had a Blues Brothers and Beatles cover bands playing. The performers were under cover, the audience not. Genevieve tagged along with my brother to see the show, I opted to stay home out of the weather and keep an eye on Dad who had a bad day yesterday. When I find the photos I'll post them. Needless to say, Genevieve came home soaked to the bone and cold but a hot shower, water bottle in bed with lots of cosy blankets and a hot water bottled fixed that.
