Exciting! Thunderstorm!

Thunderstorm in Kdy 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!

  1. It was seriously lousy to drive in, but it was highly entertaining when the lights of the shop I was in flickered and there was a collective, “OOOOOH!”

    Tell me about!

    Standing in the Royal Botanic (Garden for anyone who’s not been) and I say to my “other half” – “it’s looking a wee bit black up there, let’s head off”. “No” says she “it’ll just be a couple of spots”. Twenty minutes later we looked like we’d just escaped from a sunken submarine! Damn rain was so heavy it managed to soak through my waterproof, (which obviously isn’t).

    Oh, the joys of living in Bonnie Scotland… 😉
