View Full Version : Here Be Thunder
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 havnt had any yet, im down in Cornwall, we dont usually get long thunderstorms. I love thunderstorms though, i usually sit at my window watching :D
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:
Dingaling - you in/around Glasgow?

Meh not fair! The weather reports showed we were gonna get quite a lot over Inverness, but Ive heard/seen nothing so far... but then again, the lights keep flickering so I guess *something's* going on... I love storms =D :p
in the saotheast its usually the odd summers evening- whihc is nice to sit outside and listen- or watch from my bedroom window with a cool drink. i hope theres one tonight- theres kinda grey/brown clouds and its been really warm for this area today
Edinburgh here. No storms :(
I like thunder and lightning :)
There have been thunder storms in Belfast, too.
I love thunderstorms :) But we don't get that many here where I live.
Make that three hours. :eek:
Huge lightning flash nearby just there and my music (internet radio) cut out.
