Big storms and bears in a tree.




 Monday night severe storms expected, we didn't get a lot of rain but lots of thunder and lighting and strange light so I tried to capture it but of course the moment I got the camera it poured so this is the best I could do.

 You can see the colours if you look between the leaves but being spring the trees are in full leaf.

 And the storm hasn't hit in full force yet.
But that was nothing like the storm we got on Tuesday night, we had leaks in the back of the house but there were floods, power blackouts traffic jams  and the the highway over the mountains was closed and they had snow.
We had a dry winter but did we have to get it all at once, this time last year the Blue Mountains were on fire it just shows you how the weather can change.
No attempt to get photos too busy with buckets and towels.





 Have you hear of drop bears, maybe it's these.
On the way to bingo we have been driving past one bear in the tree for some time, he or she was joined by a another a few weeks ago are they hoping for babies, well it is spring, but the brown one is very bashful.  
I wonder if they are still in the tree after all the storms lately well I will find out next week.

  5. Take note visitors to Australia, drop bears may look very cute when sitting up in the trees, but they are lethal and take a second to think about their name.

  7. I love the bears in the tree! There's a tiny bear in a small tree behind my flat, you can't see it now the leaves are there and in winter I keep forgetting to get a photo.
    I hope you didn't get too much water damage.

  12. Poor Dear!! I hope you didn't have any damage fro the rain storms. Do you all get tornadoes? We had some bad weather yesterday - I had to run to 4 different schools and of course the rain came down in sheets just as I ran to the car -- each time!!
    One school had the kids in duck & cover!! We do that when a tornado is sited.
    Since we're going into fall - that means that you are going into spring!!
    Hope you stay safe!

    1. We don't normally get them here but in Queensland the get pretty bad cyclones, much the same thing only cover a wider area.
      We can get pretty heavy thunder storms and hail but we live a pretty charmed life most of the time.
