The purr effect storm

Well, what a night. The wet season is back with a vengeance and last night put on a wonderful display.

I suspect many around the region experienced the mighty effects of the thunderstorm overnight, especially those on the northern beaches and the coast to Port Douglas.

The tropical rain kicked off around 9pm last evening and didn't subside till 6:30am. Throughout the night there were a number of spectacular lighting shows, followed by some extremely loud thunder.

We haven't had a storm like this in over two years. This may pre-empt a volatile wet season ahead.

The cats were both alarmed and the thunder noise, and Phillip burrowed inside the armchair - his safe and dark place. It's his purfect hideaway.
