Well it looked like Armageddon here in the north east of England last night. A HUGE black, swirling cloud appeared over our hills, then thunder , then the cloud over us, then it came. RAIN, but my lord I haven't seen the likes. Gallons of the stuff so thick you couldn't see out of the windows , it was like being inside a waterfall.
The newspaper and TV was full of stories of people getting 6 inch of rain in 6 minutes. All my young student friends posting pictures of flooding around their flats and being obviously wanting their mums but trying to act cool.!!
I was lucky we didnt get flooded but the rain was warm and the puddles were very deep, , so Katy and I took off our shoes, and went out in our clothes, into the pouring tropical storm type , we were holding our arms and faces up and splashing each other and dancing in the rain.!!
It was after the pure joy and delight i realised i probably lifted my arms and legs higher than i had done all year. So my new exercise ..pretend I'm back dancing in the rain.
PS yes our neighbours thought we were mad, but I'm still smiling about it....and glad I kept my clothes on!!!!!!! Axx
