Yesterday was a day to warm the hearts of meteorologists - the temperature once again rushed past the 110 mark and in the evening much cooler sea-breezes kicked in to return the temperature to the merely warm. The amount of heat energy being poured into the air is bound to do something - so the evening rounded off the day with a remarkable show of thunder and lightning. It felt (and looked and sounded) as if there were three distinct storms active around our house. The thunder was remarkably consistent often with rumbles from all three storms overlapping.
