It's been raining a lot in this part of the world. There's heavy thunderstorm every 3 days. We even experienced lightning which struck near our current house. The strike caused a very very loud noise, the house smelt of burnt circuit and our poor Chihuahua almost had a heart attack due to the shock. The lightning strike damaged a couple of electronic items. Lessons learnt: make sure your house content is covered by insurance and always use surge protectors for important electronic items.
