  1. Got a decent light show last night, wasn't expecting it until I looked on Blitz and saw storms had formed further east so I checked Meto and they had extended the warning further east. Most of the lightning was IC but two of them were positive which blinded me even though the lightning was a few miles away, the thunder was incredibly loud and deep.

    Personally I don't think anything will go bang for another couple of hours... but could be wrong. Who knows!

    That's what I love about "storm" nights, the uncertainity and fickleness of mother nature is awesome... but an actual storm would be amazing!

    It gives me anxiety, hope and depression all at the same time lol, its exciting but when its a bust I feel so down afterwards.

    Yeah its storm viewing like no other!!   Ive been on 8 cruises, from Norway Fjords, Baltics, Ireland, Channel Islands, France/Spain, to the Med, and seen at least one proper good storm on 7 of them.   Either im super lucky or we have found the new storm chasing nirvana!!!

    I have only been on 3 cruises, two to the Caribbean and one to the med. I saw great thunderstorms on two of them but got caught in the wake of hurricane Irene on the third, I spent about 48 hours in my cabins bathroom because it was so rough. Both the Caribbean cruises I went on were with Carnival but I am not sure who I went with on the med cruise because the ship was a converted ferry named the Island Escape in the early 2000's.

    Wow to be on a cruise ship going through that would be awesome.  I had the pleasure of being on one in the med 2 years ago when we sailed into the mother of all thunderstorms, and it was one of the best things ive seen weather wise ever!!  Unlimited views and amazing lightening, the ship was hit more than once!!! The captain had to come on and reassure the passengers that the ship can handle the conditions, which were not forecast he kept stressing lol

    I was on a cruise ship in the Bahamas in 2012 that encountered a similar storm of epic proportions, the ship wasn't struck but the lightning was non stop.
