View Full Version : Here Be Thunder

04-05-06, 20:53
Just had about two hours of thunder and lightning. Longest storm we've had here before lasted about fifteen minutes. It's still going, though calming down and moving away southeastwards I think. I think most of us predicted we'd get one from all the hot fuggy weather we've had today.

Anyone else get any fireworks? Whereabouts are you? :wve:

I'm just outside Nottingham (slap bang in the middle of England) and so far no action :(. I love storms - IMO the static tingle/buildup is probably the best euphoric avaliable without medical supervision! :jmp: :jmp:

I live in Illinois and we get TONS of thunderstorms with magnificent light shows (mainly in the spring and summer). We also get hail and tornadoes, which I hate, but the actual thunder and lightning I find so awesome.

I heard this as well Gecko! There was an absolutely huge one which made the car alarms go off - and I even felt it rumbling from the second floor! O_O

It was raining here at around 7 PM. But the not-well-looking clouds are still here.

Can't hear any more rumbling or see any more flashes (oops, there's one) any more but the rain keeps coming on heavily and off a few seconds later. One of my friends who was watching from up a small range of hills (the "Braes") saw what one of the bolts actually hit - sparks flew off the house.

Brr, I love storms. :jmp:

Huge lightning flash nearby just there and my music (internet radio) cut out.
