  1. Taken from Grantham, the two decaying storms, over Manchester and North of Leeds. Impressive.
  2. Heavy snow here in Grantham, started with a snow mix about 40 mins ago but now very much in full snow. Temps dropping slightly, currently 0.6c (dropped 0.1 in last 5 mins) RH 94%. I don't have to go anywhere today, but I am expecting an Oil delivery (... I ran out 3 days ago, yes, it is rather cold in the house right now, currently 12c at the PC here), so I'm happy with it not settling too much until that's been, then it can do what it likes!
  3. I realise not everyone likes Facebook, so here is my last post naively... Realtime video of the storm (almost no sound, other than my SLR shutter) *select 4k60fps for best effect* The are photos of my camera view finder, so not the best quality. One of the most active storms I've seen. I was restricted by needing to be at work, so couldn't position myself any better, very few bolts were visable through the clouds, probably about 20 in total, maybe 10 caught on film, of which these three were the best. The arrow on the two charts indicates the exact position and (almost) the direction I was facing.
  4. Hi all. Caught a bit of the storm that passed over Sleaford /Lincoln earlier before heading to work... https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10158687596587738&id=631327737
  5. It drifted out of view, it is still very dark, but unfortunately it has gone behind the hill and I've had too much 'tipple' to make it up said mound....
  6. Hi all. Just took this looking roughly NNE from Barrowby, nr Grantham. Approx 5-7 miles away best guess. Looks rather Funnel looking... Edit: I realise it's rather hard to see. I find if you believe hard enough, you can do anything. Apart from fight fire with fire. According to the judge....
  7. Ermm, You might want to get the washing in if you're in the Bristol area, lol!
  8. Hi Ricepiolot! Beautiful shots there I'm also a long time lurker...11 years so far, hehe. The things we do for a shot, I remember many years ago being parked on a hill in Derbyshire somewhere, too petrified to step out the car because of the static on the radio.... not on the Medium wave bands.... UHF! For those that don't know, the higher up in frequency you go, the bigger or closer the spark has to be to be heard on the radio, so if you have a close (say5 miles) storm, you can pick it up on VHF (say 100MHz ish). Well, this was a ticking noise, gradually gaining in pace on 400Mhz ish.... (and EVERYTHING below!) What was basically happening was the atmosphere around me was so highly charged, the aerial on the car was acting like a Lightning Arrester, discharging it to the ground....wierd. Only ever happened to me a handful of times, but every time it does, I figure I'm better off inside the Faraday cage, than out of it, lol. Anyway... I've been up since about 0330 here, a few flashes near-by but nothing else. I have a line of something developing to the South East, but I fear it is far too light for any proper photographs, only phone based stuff. I am secretly hoping for some really heavy rain, as my next door neighbour decided last week that his section of roadside ditch was too, well, ditch-like, and has made it look all lovely and landscaped....and flat....however, mine (up-stream) is still very much ditch like in capacity.... I'm quite keen to see how that works out. I suspect most of his landscaping will end up further down the hill at some point today, money doesn't buy brains. Good luck all!
  9. Thanks guys,I have got some pictures which are hopefully below, all this is on my phone and the technology is against me! Apologies if the pics are either massive or tiny, I literally don't know what I'm doing... whilst compiling this post, I felt I was being watched.... I was (last pic). edit; I have no idea why the owl is on its side, I can't rotate it, sorry!
  10. Time lapse - Crowland storm 20th July 2014: If you watch about halfway through, you can see what looks like some interesting rotation going on.
  11. Chasing Crowland storm at the moment, had to 'core punch' a few times through what I can only describe as a monsoon. can't post pics at the mo, got to move as the rain is coming!
