Storm Front

This morning I woke up to some of the loudest rain I have heard in years. Since our area is in the middle of a 2-year drought, it was weird to hear the rain pounding on my roof like that. A thunder clap went off so loud that our entire house shook and mum felt that she needed to ask me if I was okay. Was quite amusing, considering it was only bit of thunder.

We spent the whole day driving in the rain and being lost. Dad reassured is no less than 20 times that he was pretty sure he knew where he was going, but had to ask for directions more than twice as many times. This was a typical conversation.

“Yeah, okay, got ya, first right.”
“Third left, okay.”
“Through the round-about. Yep.”
“4th right. Okay.”

*drive 200m*

“Shit, we’re lost again.”

Maybe the roads were changing as we moved or something, but it was quite amusing that we had such difficulty. I decided to take the map and as soon as I actually worked out where I was we got here in less than five minutes.

The fishing has been canceled and I have no idea what we’re doing tomorrow now. I’d like to do a bit of wakeboarding or something, but the weather will probably have a few words to say about that. So I’ll probably spend quite a bit of time writing, photography and other stuff that I could have done at home, but at least the view is nice.

A friend bought me a prepaid Internet kit so perhaps I will get online and post this later tonight or tomorrow. I feel a bit rude spending time on my computer while I am here, but my weblog and writing are both very important to me. I don’t think anyone really knows how much either mean to me in all honesty.
