After the storm #680

Daily painting #680 5"x7" oil on primed canvas 

Last night we experienced the mother of all storms!!! This morning we are waking to the news of flooded homes and swimming pools, collapsed walls, trees down and a friend's house (she lives more north) was struck by lightening! Thank goodness our home is fine and we experienced no water damage but all this in the midst of one of the most severe draughts we have had in ages. It literally never rains but pours! It is beautiful however to wake up to the smell of wet grass and the sight of rain clouds still hovering above and while I hope we have not seen the last of the rain, I am having a giggle. The Shedlocks are going camping...that must be why we are having rain! While I grew up camping and love it, it is not my husband's favourite way to holiday but I am dragging them off to the beautiful Drakensberg mountains camping, regardless. Can you imagine if we have rain for days? While it will be wonderful for our draught stricken province, my husband on the other hand will not be a happy camper!
