  1. Yes there have been several rumbles of thunder in the last 5 to 10 minutes
  2. Have just heard a gentle rumble of thunder just to the south of me.
  3. Been sunny here since at least 6am this morning.
  4. Most of it went into the sea. After all, once the resevoirs are full all the extra rainfall that caused so much flooding carried on downstream.The ground was saturated as well and couldn't hold any more.
  5. I'm no expert but looks like it might be a young Wood Warbler, Chiffchaff or Willow Warbler from the shape of thr end of the tail.
  6. I am 72 years old and I have never seen 30cms of lying snow where I have lived in this country, let alone that much in 24 hours.
  7. Yep. Between 5 and 10 claps of thunder, some quite close, and a brief but heavy hail shower. Had several showers the last couple of days but not much rain as my water butt which I had half emptied topping up the pond has only just filled up. Since it receives water from half the roof plus the garage it shows how brief the showers have been.
  8. Sublimation wouldn't cause melt ponds as, because as I understand it, it is the process of a solid becoming a gas without going through the liquid stage.
  9. The lavendar in both my front and back garden was covered in Red Admirals yesterday and there's at least a dozen on the one outside my lounge window at the moment. Not many other butterflies though - just the odd white around.
  10. Well we've just had a tremendous storm here with lots of lightning, thunder and torrential rain. Only saw one or two cloud to ground flashes as most were inthe cloud. One was immediately overhead which (a) scared the living daylights out of me and (b) nearly deafened me as it was so loud. Its now drifted away northeastwards and the clouds were a fantastic pinky orange colour.
  11. Becoming paranoid? I think you left a "more" out between those words.

    Russia

    Maybe you should say exactly the same to Russia.
  13. I doubt it. It's only called a supermoon because it nearness coincides with it being a full moon. The moon circles the Earth in 4 weeks and has an oval orbit so it is presumably closer to the planet every couple of weeks and I don't think there's a fortnightly pattern to earthquake activity.
