It’s been hot here, The Netherlands just had a record 8 days of 30+ degrees Celsius in a row, making it the hottest week ever measured here. The past two days it’s been a tad cooler and in other parts of The Netherlands there have been thunderstorms and it’s been raining from Esther’s ass (see my previous post for an explanation of that phrase), but not where I live. Then, this evening it was finally our turn. We had thunder and some rain. My phone camera doesn’t photograph rain well, but if you look closely, you can see the ground is wet and in the one picture with the lamp, some rain is visible (click on images to enlarge).
In our family, my daughter hates the heat most, so when it started raining she literally danced barefoot in the street (her hair was already wet from a shower she’d had just before).
It’s not exactly been raining cats and dogs here, more like kittens and puppies, but it’s good to finally have some water falling from the skies again.
