I love monsoons!

Last night, a major storm ripped through my neighborhood. Lightning flashed right outside; the power flickered like a strobe. Rain blew in sideways onto our porch. We pulled the plugs on all our delicate electronics, closed up all the windows, and took everything breakable off the porch, and pretty much ignored it after that.

This was the scene out our kitchen window this morning. The carport in the foreground (you can almost see the tops of cars) used to have a roof on it. The carport roof is that crumpled bit of wood in the background.

Yay wind! Extreme weather is fun! I am SO GLAD that I don't live in that property, and even more glad that our car was parked UPWIND from that disaster.
