You must excuse me for getting excited but this is the first storm I have witnessed here in the seven years I have lived in Egypt.
We had the wierdest sky today at about 16.30 the sun went . dissapeared behind the clouds and it went very quiet like as if everybody and every living thing new the thunder was coming. all except me. then just after sunset the clouds over the Valley of the Kings started to light up first I thought the egyptians had put a light show on for the tourists but soon realized we where in the middle of an electrical storm. then we had I touch of rain and I mean a few drops. the first rain on my face in 7 years.
at 23.30 its still here, the electrical storm that is! had more rain just enough to keep the dust down but there again I am sure other areas have had much more as we seemed to be on the edge of the storm it seemed to have made a circle around Luxor and the flashes are now heading for the Aswan area, had a few video's of the flashes will try and get some snaps from the clips tomorrow.
time for bed if I am to catch the sunup later, I am sure it will be worth getting up for .
