We have just had a thunderstorm. I say, thunderstorm, because we have had a few flashes of lightning and a few rumbles of thunder. It made me think back to when I was younger. The weather seemed so much more extreme then.
It was brilliantly hot in the summer – we’d play out for hours. We’d stand barefooted on manhole covers and see how long we could last… summers were endless. It barely rained, but when it did, it RAINED! The storms we had would last for hours and would be the most spectacular show. Snow would lay heavy and deep!
