what a relief!

Wow! The afternoon storm coupled with the widespread blackout was amazing. Seeing all that heavy rain come down so fast was fantastic... good tank-filling rain. We got about 12 mm in half an hour. Luckily we left the beach just before it started.

The power went off about 5.45pm and came back on at 8.20, just as I was about to light some candles.

It only cooled down to about 25 degrees, not ideal sleeping weather, but it was a relief all the same. Today was supposed to be hot again, but the seabreeze seems to be keeping a lid on the temperature for now. I notice that it's already 31 degrees in Melbourne at 11.30am and it's still only 26 here. Here's hoping it stays that way. I realise that I'm no good in the heat.
