    What passed this morning. So pleased to have seen this!

    Fantastic photos!

     

    Feeling a bit peeved myself, as I've heard that the cloud structures were superb where I live, but unfortunately I wasn't there and had to observe the storm from a truly lousy location and could do nothing about it! :(

    got alarms going off now

     

    that rain overloaded my gutters and made the bedroom window leak

     

    looking at the radar got a feeling things are starting to shift and we may have to start looking south west to west

     

    feels like it has got warmer now as well
