No post today

aNotShitPay day.

Off to Barra.

Pay the bills, sushi lunch, back home broke until next month.

I was wrong about the rain storm yesterday. It didn’t happen at 5pm as I suspected.

It was due as I left work at 7pm for my 20 minute walk home. Magnificent lightning displays all the way.

It began to rain as I reached for the padlock on the gate. By the time I got inside I was saturated. It pissed down. Gale force wind and torrential rain for an hour, then nothing.

Time I got my pants on and catch the bus.

Lixo has just seen the neighbour’s cat off in style with much snarling.


Before I go. Do you remember this scene from Finding Nemo?

Bugger me! (don’t take that literally). It’s started raining here about a half hour ago, and now we are having hailstones the size of marbles. Unheard of.

Now tell me there aren’t climatic changes afoot.

The weekend was singularly unexciting. Sunday, I went for a walk to the mini-market, no bread; then I went to the bakery, no bread… so I got changed and called a taxi and went out for lunch. Yes, my favourite BBQ restaurant. A leisurely three-hour lunch in an air conditioned restaurant just the answer to a hot day.

Wow! The storm has really kicked up. Strong winds are buffeting the trees in the park. Still heavy rain and hailstones are battering the tin roof of my carport.

I have never seen this in Rio before.

Prince Harry missed it by two days, he would have felt right at home.

Half an hour later…

A heavy downpour for an hour, and now the sun has appeared as though nothing untoward had happened. I hope it stays that way until 5pm, I have to go out for class then.
