A perturbing storm

They'd forecast storms and a rainy end to the week.
It started at about 4:30.
Thunder.
Lightning.
Torrential downpours.

I had to go out at 5:30, but thankfully by then the rain had stopped, the water had all but cleared off the paths and driveways, and all that was left were menacing rumbles and the occasional distant flash,.

These rumbles and flashes continued for hours. Meanwhile in the Aveyron, the Hérault and the Gard there were flash floods and some people were killed.

For me it meant that bus 35 was 20 minutes late on the way and 20 minutes late coming back.

I will quickly grow to dislike bus 35 very intensely, I think.
