I would not generally say I am afraid of storms. I quite like them, with lots of lightning and thunder and a torrential downpour. I did not even mind being woken at 2am by the storm we had last night. However, when lighting went down the side of building and the thunder clap was sharp and deafening and the loudest I have ever heard, I was finding this storm disturbing. One more loud thunder clap and the action drifted a way a bit. From my bed I could watch the lightning dancing in the skies and listen to the rumble of the thunder.
All over by the time I had to go to work, but I don't know if our building took a direct hit, but none of the doors would open, including the one to the carpark or any other I tried. The building had gone into lock down with the only way out by pressing the emergency door button at the front door, and then you could not get back in. How do I get to work? Trams were not running yet and I would be late even if there was a tram to catch. I had to get a taxi which cost me $20 and of course my umbrella was in my car. Not happy Jan.
There are some quite good photos of the storm here.
