Welcome to 2010! Hope you all had a happy and memorable New Year!
Last night, there were some fireworks in Melbourne, but they weren't as spectacular as previous years because we had something far more important.
RAIN ! !
...and there was lots of it. There was also thunder and lightning and at one stage, some of the thunder felt so close to Number 10, we thought a house down the street had blown up! I even got out of bed to check that there was nothing on fire.
I've never heard thunder like it.
