Good rain here in Die Wilgers. I have another blocked drain again, very fine hail heaped up. Will have to go out and clear the drain soon.

And back again in Edenvale, but light rain from a mostly clear sky, but some lightning over the airport.

Had one hella storm in Pretoria, Moot area. Was great. Cooled down, watered the lawn and gardens, loved it. Small hail that hit at one hell of an angle due to the wind, with no damage, so I can't complain! Will check the mms in a bit.

Quite a bit of rain in Wilgeheuwel last night, ground is still soaked. Seems the roof in our room only leaks when the rain comes in from a certain angle sigh.

OK I measured 34mm for last night's storm, it seems. I suspect a crapload more came down as there's a roof near the meter and the rain came from the roof's side, for the most part, so I think a lot of it missed.

25mm in total, 15 during the first windy noisy batch, followed by the remainder a bit later.

No hail at home.

I was at the office when the storm broke loose. Watched the storm for a while, phoned my wife and told her no way am I going out in this storm, I'm going to wait until it pass before returning back home. (Was at the office doing weekly offline backups).

Two trees (one front, one rear) lost a branch or two. Luckily no damage to buildings or infra.

Cleanup operations will commence sometimes this week as the responsible person will have to plan this extra work for his crew (yes, we are exempted from lockdown).

Somebody will score the wood for his/her house... nice for a fire but not for a braai.
