  1. Been in Croatia, got back on Tues. Zadar was kind enough to deliver a corking storm on Saturday evening. Unfortunately I've never had to deal with street lighting or scenery during a storm, given that most of my storms in Norfolk are devoid of anything apart from darkness, so it was all a bit hit and miss. When it really ramped up I was driven off the balcony by horizontal rain and very squally winds, suffice to say it was very very noisy. I've included one where it felt like I'd been punched in the chest by a giant (I think I must have stabbed the camera button on my phone by accident, I was swapping from DSLR to a bit of videoing at the time).

  3. Can't believe that yet again not so much as a sniff at some rain, never mind a storm. It's as bad as 2018 in terms of below average rainfall, August is traditionally a wet summer month in this part of the country.
  4. Once again any action (and I include rain in that) is in Lincs and the NE. Dreadful here, lack of rain is as bad as it was in 2018.
  5. Can see them from here, absolutely massive, there's about 3 in a line. Oh well, always next year eh?
  6. Oof! 8.39 - that was like a bomb going off! Just interested - what's the pool house framework made from? Is it a very fine mesh?
  7. Proper, perfect rain! No storms (as expected) but I'll take this rain over that!
  8. Light patchy rain, can see even 5mm if this is what to expect for the rest of the day on and off.
  9. Netweather are only predicting 5mm for the Norwich area today. That really isn't going to make a whole lot of difference!
  10. Hoping the predicted rainfall on Wednesday afternoon makes an appearance rather than fizzling out. Desperate here, everything looks as bad as this time last year.
  11. There's certainly a whiff of something in the air round here, but it ain't autumn
  12. Not even much in the way of rain in Norfolk, everything passing to the north or south. Never mind storm starved, we're rain starved
  13. Pathetic isn't it? Been over nr Towcester at a dog show today, lovely build up, drove through various heavy rains on the way back via A605 etc, got into Norfolk and the roads were pretty much dry. No measurable rain at home either. Radar showed everything travelling north or south of us; maybe we'll get some rain in November?
  14. Better not hear any whingeing about a lack of storms for the NE/NW/Scotland in 2020
  15. Remember folks, if anyone from the NE, the NW or Scotland whinges about not having any storms, we can gently remind them about 2019.....
  16. Oh look, rain! *waves*. Nice seeing you from a distance. This is getting ridiculous.
  17. I've resisted doing so, so far - bar the phlox which always look like dying ducks in a thunderstorm after a few days without rain! Daily pot and basket watering though as expected.
  18. I recorded 3mm It was like...well....not a lot really. I've seen wetter grass from heavy dew tbh.
  19. I think it rained overnight. A bit. The lack of rainfall in the east should be highlighted!
  20. Seems I'll be getting a predicted mammoth 5mm of rainfall. That's really going to make a difference.....
  21. Hi Ed, it's dreadful isn't it? I've only got 9mm of rainfall recorded for July which mostly came from the storms at the end of the month. My autumn garden clearance is now 2 months early and the grazing is looking sad, admittedly not as bad as last year but not far off.
  22. Four minutes of light rain yesterday, showers even more isolated today (not sure they could be any more isolated but hey ho!) Hoping for some decent rainfall Friday/Saturday.
