What a lovely morning hot and dry so we decided that in the afternoon we would go to the Lodge for
some hay making to gather up the cut grass from my strimming. We left home with the sky a little over cast.
Arriving at the Lodge 8 miles later the sky was a bit darker but I decided to press on. Clickychick was raking up the rough cut grass and I was mowing. We hadn't been there long when the thunder started. Soon after there were a few drops of rain so we packed up and went inside for a cuppa.
We were sat on the verandah having our cuppa when the heavens opened. I have never seen rain like it. Had we decided to go to the car we would have been literally soaked to the skin and standing in a couple of inches of water. I decided to try a few shots which might if I was lucky give some idea of the rain.
This one shows the rain hitting the verandah top rail.
