Hello everyone! A very warm welcome to you all! The video I have chosen for this post is some beautiful piano music with the sound of rain. Enjoy!
The photos I am sharing today are ones that I took a week and a half ago. You just need to click on the images to see a larger view.
We got a series of thunderstorms yesterday that knocked out the power of 10's of thousands of people, so I heard. I did see a tree in my area that suffered some damage as a result of the high winds of 90 km! A large part of the tree snapped and the branches fell to the ground. I heard that many other trees had the same experience. We really needed this rain, the temperatures were dangerously high, and several people have died as a result of the intense heat and humidity.
