Wednesday 10th May

The day was generally sunny and warm around 19°c howeve an omonus storm cloud appeared after 7pm and herolded an evening to remember.

What an evening it was, just before 9pm the activity really kicked off, with some lightning and odd rumbles of thunder, with almost perfect visibility (no low cloud or rain clouds sweeping over the landscape) the lightning was great and nearly every one was visible, although we did get a power surge just before 10 (possibly storm related?). Not much rain around here although what we did get made it breezy, the storm seemed to fizzle away after coming overhead around 10:30pm, but it was interesting seeing the lightning get closer and closer as it moved over Swansea.
