Storms

We are having the most spectacular electrical storm here in the SW. There have been constant flashes of lightening, one per second for the past twenty minutes at least and it looks as though it will continue for a while yet.

Anyone else seeing a storm at the moment?

Not so far dongle, but it was forecast here for tonight.
They said there would be very little rain, if any, but lots of lightning and some thunder.

You're not gonna wet your pants if you get scared, are you?

Re: Storms

We went out in the garden for a while to watch it and there was a real gravitational pull to it. Never felt that before. Then it started peeing down hail stones so we came in.

Ooer, what do you mean? Can you explain that a bit more please?

BTW, I was once told to unplug the computer and telephone in storms.
Does anyone else do this?

Felt like something was pushing down on my shoulders (and no, I haven't been drinking)

So dramatic isn't it Meg. I do love a good storm. It;s a shame it bypassed you.
