    Slept right through it. We get lightning MAYBE once a year. I'm so bummed.
  7. You want ligthning? Move to Florida.
  8. We're in a drought here in Canberra. Most of our territory and the state surrounding us have officially been in drought for about 2 years now i think. One of our neighbouring cities (45 mins away) only had 6 weeks of water left in their catchment areas 8 weeks ago. Fortunately it rained for a couple of days last month and they have a bit more water, but they pretty much live each day expecting to run out at any stage. They only shower every second or third day and can't water lawns, wash cars, or use water for anything apart from drinking. Droughts aren't cool.
