Unexpected Storm!!

What a shock!! Beautiful weather this morning while we were in town shopping. It was so warm we had the windows rolled down in the car. Boy am I glad we had returned  home when the storm front went through. I was checking my emails when I heard the sound of quite large rain drops on the roof and I walked to the window in time to see the hail start. The temperature dropped by 7 degrees and down it came. Amazing, I have never seen it like that here before, and especially at this time of year. Grabbed my camera and raced outside and here are some of the photo's I took..

This is our front garden.

The front path.

The rainbows after the storm.

The sky looks blue but in reality it nearly black.
