Hot and Sultry

The weather forecast was correct for Thursday as it turned out to be hot and sultry as the temperature reached 28.4°C (83.1°F) in the afternoon. The afternoon had the feeling that a storm was brewing up.

However, we missed out on any rainfall and we missed any thunderstorms that were around. On occasions the sky clouded over as though we would be getting a storm at any moment.
In the late afternoon we had a few rumbles of thunder as a storm passed to the south of the allotments.
As the storm passed I was watering the plot. I thought that I was maybe wasting my time and that a thunderstorm would do the job for me. As it turned out it was just as well I continued watering as the storm passed by without shedding a drop of rain. Rain is becoming a precious commodity on the allotment and in the garden.
