Thunder Bolts and Lightning!!

When the lightning strikes and the lights go out - we grab some torches, matches and candles and wait for the lights to come back on again. Not my youngest daughter - she sees a photo shoot option and grabs the camera!

Our modem was partially fried by the lightning that struck our house - and works intermittently - [like right now]. New Telkom modems arrive in Durban next week some time - hopefully. Maybe I should take Nunu Pepe's advice ..."Step away compelety for a bit go on an adventure take pics and tell us all about it!!!"

Ja, we've had some violent storms in Gauteng too - sometimes the cause of power-outages, but not always.

I live on a hill and overlook other hills, so I quite enjoy looking out at the darkness and seeing the silhouettes.
Modems and lightning - eina!
Have a peaceful Sunday.

We just celebrated Loy Krathong here in Thailand, the festival of floating lights. Perhaps you could set one of those candles in a puddle, and celebrate with us! -X
