They prophesied thunderstorms, heavy rainfall, hail storms and a strong temperature drop. Listening to news like that always causes me headache - there are lots of seldom plants on the balcony I have to protect from too bad weather. I don't feel like having my private jungle smashed to green pudding in a hailstorm. I've seen hailstones 5cm (2") big on photos in weather forums, I've read about pigeons with broken wings and hurt people - nothing I'm keen on having at home.
But I'm living in a blessed corner of my city. A few lightnings, some grumbling in the sky, ten minutes heavy rain and that's it! Only the clouds were impressive and I'm glad that this beast was far, far away!
