Well what an afternoon, we had gone shopping in brilliant sunshine and came out to this at 3pm.
I happened to say to Chris if those clouds touch we are in for one heck of a storm.
I looked over the water to this.
The little black dot you can see on the right is a sailing boat.
We got home just as the thunder and lightening started, the heavens opened and it poured, we sat in the car not wanting to brave the rain to take in the shopping but it just kept falling, flashes of lightening from all around us and the thunder cracking just after it.
We sat around 20 minutes then Chris’s alerter for the fire brigade went off, he has just got back and there were two houses struck by the lightening and then another call out to a house that was flooded.
Thankfully it has now calmed down.
