  1. Of course the bees would die off permanently too , and nothing would grow anyway and then as a result of that , humans are gone, but if thats want you want , Just go and live on the north pole
  2. Reasons for not looking forward to Winter, where do I start? at least the night starts getting lighter in just over 5 weeks time .... a faint glimmer of hope, Then the horror of January needs to be ridden out , then its uphill again to spring , Febs not great but dont mind it as most the horror months are gone ,and spring is not too far ahead You guessed, I dont like winter
  3. Well the other side of the Pennines has stole the storms again , yesterdays forecast showed lightning over the NW, yet somehow I still knew it would be a far east event
  4. ^ Not many bad summers in the 1990's, it really was a good period , and for thunderstorms too contrast that to post 2007 , lots appearing in that list of shame, something has changed (low solar)
  5. Cumulonimbus over me now giving just boring rain , not even that heavy, there is no way this one was ever going to be electrical moving over this area
  6. Same here, the ones from the south or north wales always seem to fizzle before they get here, yet storms have no problem developing to the north of here and then beefing up more as they push away further still, this area really does kill them today is a classic example of what usually happens ,it is very annoying , still I got to hear a whole 2 rumbles , yay for that
  7. Lots of thunder from a cell here earlier this afternoon, only two flashes seen of sheet lightning though, most of the lightning was intracloud and not directly overhead , but a very loud cannon shell sound must have been a fairly close CG strike, could have been a positive strike jumping clear of the main thunder cloud

  9. you know when they say frequent lightning its game over , same as humdingers
  10. Seems most of the North West t storms have been over sparsely populated areas , ie the Irish sea , or northernmost moorlands , While Gtr Manchester, Merseyside etc not getting much thunder wise, just moderate sporadic rain this afternoon
  11. not heard thunder today, but some very thundery skies to my north west earlier that were pushing away as usual , too far to hear thunder , pity it wasn't night , as lightning would have been visible , a bust here for sure , again , roll on autumn
  12. I am off work for a week first full week of august , I said a couple of weeks ago that week would be meh at the best , not based on anything scientific , but just because I always time it wrong , looks like I could be right Inevitable really, I always get a jinxed week , always , blame me for a poor start to august
  13. Last weekend was rubbish but as soon as the working week started on Monday the heatwave began. drawing the curtains back to hot sun and blue sky every weekday with temps maxing around 30c most days , Get up Saturday , grey , drab featurless stratus, drizzly , , the weather knows its the weekend again What a sick sense of humour it has
  14. I am off work for a week next week, first full working week of August, sorry folks but that means I have doomed that week to grey, rainy and drab Happens every time
