Anyone got thunder, it started here about 3/4 of an hour, had some heavy rain but did not last very long. Going to wait up a bit longer to see if the thunder passes before I go to bed :-( :-(

Heavy rain with thunder and lighting in my part of Kent around 3am/4am this morning, overcast at moment but quite warm.

Was really looking forward to a good storm, love watching them, what did we get in Sussex? A couple of flashes in the night and about a teaspoonfull of rain. Going to open the gate this morning. I popped into the garage for some oil for the gate latch and it had stopped when I came out! I blame the EU, never get a good honest British storm now, it's those darn health and safety regulations I think!
