Severe Weather Warning

Posted July 9th, 2010 in Perth WA 2 Comments »

I was little worried about the weather yesterday morning.  I could stat to see the dark cloud in the sky around 9am, and it started raining around noon.  The rain didn’t continue, but it started again around mid afternoon.

According to the Bureau of Meteorology, the storm was expected to bring hail, heavy rain and strong gusts of wind which could reach 90km/h.  Luckily my area was ok.

I mentioned that 07/July was tanabata day on my previous post.  As I wrote “what is tanabata” here, it is a day where separated lovers brought back together only once a year and therefore I think that this is a romantic day for couples.  Yesterday, I received an email from one of my friends in Japan.  She said that she got married on 07/July (no ceremony or party, just submitting the form to the city hall).  I thought it’s romantic to make tanabata day as a wedding anniversary 🙂

Outside is still windy.  It’s going to be all raining until next week according to the forecast…   I don’t mind raining, but I just worry about the hail!  And, I was planning a gathering of friends this weekend.  It’s going to be very cold…  I bought a big heater online, but I don’t think it will arrive before Sunday (><)

I will tell everyone to wear warm clothes :p

By the way, it is 8:33 now and there was a small hailing!  I was nearly in panic… just worrying about the car.  But, the hail was pretty small/

It is yes weird to see the hail coming from the sky in Perth :p


This photo was taken by me right after the short hailing this morning.
