As I mentioned earlier, it has appeared that the monsoon is over. However, this afternoon a thunderstorm suddenly blew in about 1:30. The rain was very heavy with plenty of hail. If you've never heard it, you can't quite imagine the sound of hail on a tin roof! It stopped for a short while then started up again. By shortly after 2:00 it was all over and the sun came out. As I looked online for the weather forecast, it seems we will be having more rain next week. I was happy to be cozily inside during the rain! Here are a few shots I took from the Quad balcony, the first two during the rain, the last two afterwards when the sun came out.
