Well I'm sitting here in dry South Bucks (at present), struggling to eat a sandwich because I've got what appears to be Tonsillitis. Penicillin and salt water at the ready.

Christ, If I lived just south of Reading and swallowed every time there was a flash of lightning earlier, I'd have been in a damn site hell load of pain haha....

Think I'll get some much-needed rest and let you Surrey/Hants folk enjoy the show! 

 

Get better soon! I also weirdly appear to have tonsilitis and I feel dreadful, so i am also calling it a night! Good luck everyone:)

My piece de resistance: (drumroll please...)  

I've just been going through my phones photos from yesterday. Apart from the two oversized bras on next door's washing, this popped up: Finally got one!!

From what I understand, the current isolated storm cells have developed on a convergence wave tied into the circulation of the depression in Biscay. This "wave" will rotate and traverse slo

I was lucky enough to see a storm near Bordeaux from 36,000 feet early Wed morning (not keen on the turbulence though even if we were a decent distance away!) Seeing lightning flaring in every direction every second and being able to see the cloud structure was really something :) Goodness knows what the Amsterdam storm is like then!

I actually flew back from Crete into Manchester about 2 hours before THE storm hit later in the day Tuesday. There were enormous cumulonimbus the length of Italy, and we skirted past at 36000ft of one around Venice, possibly a little further North (Just inland from the Adriatic sea) We did a right turn to avoid going over the top, then a left turn to continue towards the UK via France, however we had not a drop of turbulence the entire flight. Incredibly smooth the whole way. I was amazed.

I'm glad I stayed up for this. It's not even a direct hit, but it has been a long time since we've had a decent light show at night.

Been a good night watching it all unfold. Hopefully we will get a direct hit soon. It's not far away! Very heavy rain here in Sandbanks now.

My temp is a bit up down and I feel weak, but no runny nose or cough so it's bacterial most likely. If you have cold symptoms then yours is probs viral and will go away easier within several days. Take it easy bro!

Hmm - Now the lights are flickering. I have a fish tank right here, running Co2 in to the tank from a fire extinguisher. O_O

lights just flickered twice here in close succession despite not that close to a storm.... yet.... must be some notable outages occurring

Good lord that was a close cracking strike I nearly peed myself. Didn't half jump!!

Of course that would be after I moved away from the area. Still hearing occasional rumbles here.
