I don’t recall thunderstorms being forecast. It has been dull all day, but it was nothing unusual. But when I went downstairs the air felt really heavy; almost oppressive. Then it started raining. Now it’s a full-on downpour complete with the occasional rumble of thunder. I don’t think I’ve ever seen the rain so heavy. Even so, a lot of the walls are still completely bone dry.
I don’t really like it. It’s very hot and very rainy. And we have to have the lights on at 3 in the afternoon in one of the longest days of the year. It looks like winter but feels like summer. Euch. There was a powercut earlier aswell, and the lights keep on flickering.
The BBC Weather website is now forecasting thunder for tomorrow aswell…
Update: My parents have just come home, and apparently while they were stuck in the middle of the bedlam the radio said that the weather was fine across the country apart from a few spits and spots which are nothing to worry about!
