A little unexpected.....!


It's not all sunshine and blue skies in Perth, sometimes the weather can throw in something a little unexpected. When I say unexpected, the forecast had been for a storm...for the last four days! When we went into the movies on Saturday evening it was warm and humid, we went to see Skyfall and in typical Bond style the noise level was extreme. On arriving home I mentioned to Aimee that I thought it might have been raining while we were at the movies...pfffft raining she says! take a look at this (thanks for the pics).  It seems 'we had a bit of a storm', thunder, lightening and pretty hearty hail and I missed it all, which is a shame because I enjoy a good storm. This is pretty much as close to snow as we're ever going to get in Perth and it's not even winter, but it is pretty rare. So did anything freakishly weird happen to you over the weekend, do tell! A new week begins, could they possibly be flying by any faster! Take care. p.s. there's something freaky on Bills blog today.....

  1. I was hoping you had some photos - what a strange day! And I am no fan of thunder and lightning - it was chaos here in the hills with some local flooding. Seems like some more coming too!

  2. Looks like you had a hailstorm. Looks like flowers in the top shot.

  3. After your sunny and warm photos lately, this is indeed quite a contrast.

    We enjoyed our visit to Sydney and Cairns on the way to Papua New Guinea. Sometime we will have to make it to Western Australia. We did become interested in a cruise down the Kimberly coast, but that is still quite a distance from Perth.

  4. I heard about the storm in the news, and was quite surprised, as in my suburb we weren´t affected by hail, it rained for about 15 minutes at around 6pm and then stopped! It was just quite windy.

  5. How incredibly strange! I think I've rarely seen such big hail drops!

  6. I don't like hail storms. We had one here last summer where the wind was blowing sideways and hail was hitting all of our windows and I thought we would lose a few of them! Fortunately, that was not the case. Scary, though!

    Don't you wonder what the hail brought this on?

  7. Those are BIG hail stones!! Good thing you were watching James and he's always surrounded with lots of noise, block out a storm with no problem! Hope you have a great hail-free week!! And, yes!! What the hail brought this on indeed! No one says it like Lowell!! Love it!

  9. I was quite surprised to see the hail storm on the channel ten news because it doesn't usually happen this time of the year in your neck of the woods, come to think about Mother Nature is full of surprises.

  10. Wow! That must have been some hail storm! The weather has been appalling over here these past few days... storms and floods in so may parts :-(
    What did you think of Skyfall? I'm not usually a big Bond fan but I thought it was fab :-)

  12. I've had 2 cars pummeled and damaged by hail including a broken windshield on one of them so I cringe when I hear hail coming down.

  16. The hose is snaking its way across the lawn amid the hail.

  17. Goodness, look at that hail! Love the way you caught the detail and that hose...(I saw Skyfall last weekend - not surprised the noise drowned out the hailstorm!:) I can't recall anything that freakish lately, though I was in Hawaii in March when hail fell there too!

  18. I admit that I do love a good storm when I am safely ensconced inside and can watch from the safety of my windows.

    I hope that your car was not damaged!

  19. Almost looks like someone split a bean bag. What a difference a few Kms make! Just up the road in Yanchep we had 6 drops of rain & that was it.

  20. Ouch!!! Those poor people who got caught unprepared probably have lots of stories and ouches to talk about:) That's pretty awesome weather you have there:)

  22. How fun is that? I would have been very sorry to have missed the whole thing because, like you I really do like a good storm. It was a busy and great weekend here. Symphony on Saturday night and a comedy group called "Capitol Steps" this afternoon. (They do political humor and lord knows, there is plenty of material there.) Busy week ahead but I'm looking forward to it.

  23. I must having a little chuckle when I saw today's photographs and the read your text which says that the hail fell while you were at a screening of "Skyfall". Hail can do so much damage sometimes. Nothing freaky happened to me over the weekend but we did find a fabulous turn of the century homestead with a cafe serving great food and reasonable prices. Good freaky not bad freaky.

  24. Wow, hail in your summer time! The weather surely is the most difficult thing to predict! I'm waiting for the Bond movie to come out on dvd as we can't go to the cinema with our small children...waiting patiently!

  25. How weird, I think you are enjoying the beach and you have even sooner hail then we here in fall!

    ReplyDelete
  26. WOW! At first I thought it was tiny white blooms. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  27. I thought they were daisies at first! Quite something for Perth...

  28. Well I thought that was a snake!!!!! looking at the thumbnail. Relieved!! Weather is certainly a feature in many of our shots these day. Wow.
