Michelle- how you going?

I heard on the radio today that Perth is getting pounded with storms.... and something crazy like 3 people have been struck by lightening! Yikes!

You OK?

Heyas!

Thanks for thinking of me, still alive and kicking here Wink It was super crazy on Friday when the storms hit. It was literally flash/bang, flash/bang, just everywhere! I think it was 4 people who got hit. Here's a story of a guy who filmed himself being struck! Watch the video as you can see what I am talking about. http://news.ninemsn.com.au/national/8407323/man-films-himself-getting-hit-by-lightning
It looked like night time in the morning and at that stage I was getting ready for work and for Aaron to go to daycare and it just started to pour as we went out. I could hear the thunder from inside the car with the radio on, it was so loud! So many too, one after another and I got to daycare and I could feel the energy around me, it was very scary, I thought I was going to get hit by lightening with Aaron in my arms as it was right on top of us with the flash and bang happening at the same time, I tell you my heart was racing! We got in OK and then there was the usual tears as I had to leave Aaron at daycare and I felt extra bad because of the bad weather, like what if I had an accident on the way to work? The rain was hard and crack of lightening all around...normally spectacular to watch when you're out in it, it's a different story! Safe to say it was a slow morning at work and then by the time I left, it was 35C and blue skies (humid as though!)....you never would have thought we'd been hit by a storm!

It's going to be hot this week, it's Australia Day on Thursday (like your 4th of July I guess!), we're having a BBQ but I think we shall be eating inside because after today we are set for consecutive 40C days and Saturday is 42C, no better Sunday either with a top of 40C still :/ Glad I got the aircon! I am taking the girls to the movies on Friday as I have taken some time off work and Aaron still needs to go to daycare to keep his spot so it's time with my girls without the little man, been a while!
