The monsoon storms truly broke this evening! No need to water the plants tonight.
And this, of course, is pretty much how my last book began, wondering what, if any, connections there might be between flashes of lightening and flash photography. Little did I know ... I could have spent a long time outside this evening taking flashy photos, but I would also have got extremely wet.
Five thousand miles away, as the heatwave broke in London, one of the iconic buildings in Wimbledon Village, the Old Fire Station - with a little clock tower on top - took a direct lightening hit and caught fire. It's beyond strange to see a (minor) catastrophe in a very familiar place happening on-line.
