Today has been so thrilling as a incredible thunder, lightening, rain, wind and hail storm blast across Doha!
Here is a video where I’m filming the rain and it starts to hail! I first think it’s rocks blowing off the roof – but I think to myself…how can there be rocks on the roof….when I see it is actually hail!!
Hail that blew in while I had the screen door opened to take video!!
Here are pictures during the storm:
The rain slowly begins:Rain is now pounding against the windows!Pooh Bear and Bob Jazeera sticking close to me!Birds seeking shelter in the windows:As the rain settles a bit, finches come to the feeder at the kitchen window to eat:As the storm moved slowly across the city, lightening was visible and near as large jagged bolts crackled down from the heavens!!
After the worst of the storm moved off, I walked around the compound to see if any damage had happened. Thankfully only a few trees lost some branches!
The storm was so bad, that school has been canceled tomorrow for clean-up and repair!!! A day off!!! Woohoo!!!
According to a rain radar, more rain is on the way!!
