    Huge crawler right above, not much in the way of thunder though, the detectors don't seem to be picking up any of what I'm seeing in front of me.

    Yeah was a good one that. Surprised how much the lightening detectors are missing stuff. That didn't show at all.

    Just checking in from the chase. Having real good fun and the night is still young! Some amazing lightning already tonight. Rain and wind are a problem so photos have been limited.

    Oh my goodness… Just saw an incredible orange crawler over the mid channel… Easily the best individual lightning flash I’ve seen since June 2019. Goosebumps!!

    Hoping that nuisance residual cloud clears for you southerners. Second bout of electrical activity now established over Cherbourg and Channel Islands. Wish them storms had the same amount of energy that one East of Limoges has though!! Good grief that’s going mental. 

    I've always said the Clermont Ferrand area was the ideal place to live in France!

    Hello from a very storm starved Durham; hoping that Monday and Tuesday may deliver up here. For now, it is cam watching.

    Dom? Pity Me? I used to live around the corner from there in Dryburn Park! You wouldn't happen to know Cliff Richardson?

    So the anvil crawlers are out.  Does that signal the end of round 1?  I'm on the A21 and I'm going on a theta W hunch

    These crawlers are highlights of this season so far in my opinion… Nothing quite like them!
