Storms, hail, and NO NET

ARRGH- talk about frustration! Today is FRIDAY and bag day- and I've had NO internet connection since 9pm last night. We had storms ( as in Thunder storms) the WHOLE day yesterday right into the early hours of this morning.- WTH??- Because I stay at the coast this is something we hardly have- let alone the whole day and into the night too. OMG, I've been without my net connection and have felt LOST again- hahaha. SO SAD Kim, So Sad! lol

We had a hail storm like no other here last night- it looked like it had snowed. We stood in AWE and watched it come down and it was still thick on the grass until 2am this morning even with it raining continuously - which only means it was FREEZING here- lol

I took a few photo's just as it started and then my battery went flat- but you can see just how thick it was as it started!


Taken out my window as I wasn't going outside in this- lol


CRAZY stuff- it just kept coming- usually we have a few stones then it lets up- NOOOOO- it was thick to the grass by the time the storm finished.


HAHAHAHA- my son in his waterproof hiking boots couldn't WAIT to get out there and be nailed with ice- OH what it is to be a kid huh?


He came in quick enough after this shot tho- said it was a little hard on the skin! hahahahaha.

It's still raining today and we have people stuck on roads due to SNOW! HELLO- this is South Africa for Pete's sake.

Bring on our sun! Bunny put away the *Vodoo doll*- BWWWWWWAHAHAHAHA.

Thanks to my Sis (GSCreations) for trying to get all my goodies going this morning- She got panic sms's and phone calls this morning from me and had even made up a blog draft incase it was my modem that had blown-I made it back SIS- hahahahaha-  LOVE YA-MWAH
