    Rant Rant Rant.....

    Still no storm in Hatfield for months....so tired of seeing storms everywhere else. Now it looks like Weds storm possibilities are going to be pushing up from France into the extreme south coast but will they come up as far as me...I doubt it....Bored now. Posted Image

    Well we had a thundery shower in Norwich a couple of weeks ago which I was lucky enough to film. But, I want a storm that lasts for at least an hour before I consider myself out of the club. Preferably at night.......with bags of CG lightning......and the lights flickering.......and everyone in the street is awake. Oh happy days. :D

    I have never seen the No Storms Club have to extend into a second thread in a year before!

    2012 must be bad.

    Kick me out of the club if you have to as I have had thunder on 7 days this year.

    But these were ALL passing thundery showers and no event lasted more than 20 minutes, and each event yielded thunder ranging from only one to seven claps. I have still not had a 'proper' storm lasting an hour or more since 28th June 2011. 'That' day this year was a tremendous disappointment and the prelude to a certain part of the country - which is normally not known for high levels of thundery activity - you know who you are! - to have a chain of excitement in the form of regular thunderstorms while the S.E. constantly misses out.

    In all seriousness, I've not even had a proper thundery shower this year!

    Yup still in here.. I never thought Leeds was big enough for one part of the city to get a thunderstorm but other parts not.. but I guess it is, because that's exactly what has happened so far.

    So typical - just watched the lightning overlay on the NW extra radar. Over the last four hours there was one hell of a lot of lightning to the east of me about four hours again and then and hour later one hell of a lot of lightning to the west of me!!!! What did I do so wrong that I just got the torrential rain? Not even a distant rumble. Huff. Not fair!

    Same story here!

    2012 has been the most dissapointing year for storms in Dorset, 2011 wasnt much better either. Used to get plenty of storms here back in 1990s and early 2000s but hardly any these days... sort it out mother nature!! Posted Image

    Oh dear. The epitomy of sheer irony. Posted Image

    Happened to me in September 2008. The floods that occured in Gloucestershire, Worcestershire and Herefordshire. Now I hadn't seen a storm throughout that Summer here in Solihull. But on the day one DID arrive, I was either on my way to, or was already in Exmouth for a weeks holiday.

    I only found out when I came back and my youinger Brother said to me, you missed it? I said missed what? He said a thunderstorm on the afternoon you left for Devon.

    My initial reaction was, (and understandably...) "AAAAAAARRRRGGGHHHHH!!!!"

    So I share your pain there QuantumSnow. Fancy a beer or something stronger? I don't care if it's not quite beer o'clock yet but somewhere on the planet, it is. That's my theory anyway. Cheers.

    Phil.

    Still not heard a rumble of thunder since July 2011, definitely the longest in my 52 years!

    Well, after another moan yesterday, I'M OUTTA HERE! Storm from 400-4.30 today. Biblical rain & whilst not continuous thunder, there was enough to make it more than just a thundery shower. Hope Crewe Cold got some of this too, it seemed to be a trough as much as an isolated storm. Byeeeee.

    By the way guys, sorry but I've emptied the fridge of all the remaining beer, I need to celebrate!

    One flash of lightning and close boom of thunder- ordinarily that wouldn't really be enough to get out of here BUT it's good enough for me given the context of the last 15 months or so!

    This year is by far the WORST year for storms I have ever experienced. Even last year was better. This is just ridiculous! Made even worse by the fact that places so close to here have had amazing storms this year. definitely a postcode thing.

    Coventry just had its first proper thunderstorm since I moved here in May last year! The storms of June 28th just missed us here, producing distant thunder and about 5 minutes of very torrential rain. This time the thundershower passed overhead, and I saw a flash of lightning (as well as heard plenty of close thunder) and the rain was again torrential.

    While this year hasn't been anything too remarkable for storms, it's been a darn sight better than last year (not that that's very hard -- 2011 was beyond pathetic)... both because I've heard a lot more thunder (including the two most notable events, June 28th and today) and because I went back to visit my family in Canada for two weeks, and saw a handful of storms while there. :)
