I love Autumn I get to work in my gardens all day don't have to chase the shade around and until next week daylight savings means that I can play in the garden until about 7 pm. What I don't like is the sudden thunder storm we get, got one this morning, it was a beauty, probably the whole months rain in 1 hour, thunder and lightning as it got closer the time difference between the lightning and thunder got shorter and shorter.
I worry about the lightning strikes, I'm surrounded by tall trees and 1 is very close to the house, I shouldn't worry as I'm down the hill a little and the strikes seem to be on the trees above me. I've got very good surge protection yet I still turn off everything and pull the plugs from the walls, having had my last house hit by lightning I know the destruction to micro processes a lightning strike can cause.
I've got another problem, this is my next door neighbours car port, this photo was taken 5 minutes into the thunderstorm, their storm water drain does not deal with any rain and overflows and is undermining my foundations, I've spoken to neighbour and he tells me it's my problem not his. The other thing I don't like is the power cable that is connected to a colour bond fence and the water that is running down it.
