Record Rainfall for Perth

We knew thunderstorms were forecast and have already had the wettest day since 1983 this month but yesterday was really unusual....to my knowledge it has never rained on Dec12th in the 43yrs we have lived Down Under. The sky was very grey all day and then mid-afternoon the rumbles of thunder began. Then the lightening seemed to up the ante and was flashing in every direction, the heaviest rain began and this theatre continued non-stop for hours.


The birthday girl took her bucket of soapy water and went snailing!

The dams will be getting a much-needed top-up, my friend's water-tanks are full to the brim and the gardens look well, relieved! Even more rain is expected today and the temps for the rest of the week will stay under 30C which is a blessing to softies like me! Look at these clouds forming just before the fun started.

Hooroo for now,
Love from Sue


  1. Funny weather for this time of year for sure, especially as the last two storms have lasted all day, almost. Love reading your blog Sue, as I only live a few km's from you in Warnbro it is very relevant to me. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and your family. JoyK

  2. Hallo Joy...lovely to 'meet' you. Thank you for your kind words and I wish the season's best for you and your loved ones too.
