Today’s prompt is:  What are the worst weather conditions you’ve ever endured?

After weeks of hot, dry and uncomfortable blistering sunny days, we were out walking the dog when the sky turned purple and it began to rain.
Not a shower, not drops, but a delicious downpour with thunder and lightning.
We sang. We danced. We sploshed and splashed. We rejoiced. We cooled down.
It continued as we drove soggily home, happy and ecstatic that the air was cleansed.
Our drive was under six inches of water, water which wasn’t going anywhere, and more was running from the road down into our garden.
We parked up and almost panicked.
Our front door threshold hadn’t been breached, but the water level was rising.
Then the rain stopped, an inch before disaster could strike.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    What a great adventure! I can imagine how frantic you were to find a flood in front of your house.
