- Storm's a'comin!
it was loud and bright at 2:30am in milton keynes, blew over in around a half hour to just a distant rumble.
at it’s peak there was a lot of water and as the others said flashes of lighting and the sound of thunder was almost constant.
woke agin just before 5am for another bout, a little disaapointed as not much second time round, but sat watching the lighting while having breakfast was pretty cool,
off to work now……Posted 3 years agoteamhurtmoreMember
Brilliant electric storm, sheet and fork lightening, incredible thunder. I was woken up by a rather terrified retriever and spent 30m calming him and the other one down while watching the spectacle at 2-03 ish. Tired now though but dogs spark out!!! Lovely fresh feeling this morning.

I ran out into the garden at 0130 (to get the pegs off the line), and could feel a few ‘spatters’ of rain..
Then I heard the torrential downpour rushing over the roofs of the houses a few streets away, and ran back into the house literally being ‘chased’ by a wall of rain!!

Woken up last night by some really heavy rain, then it stopped suddenly and was followed immediately by the loudest clap of thunder I have ever heard. Two more in the distance as it moved away then done. The whole thing lasted for less time than the car alarms the first clap set off!Posted 3 years agorossi46Member
Had a humdinger here in Kent yesterday evening, I’ll load up some photos later (or you can see them in my thunderstorm photo thread), unfortunately I was so tired after too many sleepless sticky night’s that I missed the other two overnight! Damn!Posted 3 years ago
Not seen a storm like these since I was a child in the 80’s, I remember one afternoon in July when the sky turned purple and there was a storm as ferocious as the ones we’ve just had.
Last night’s storm around Chippenham wasn’t as energetic as Thursday night’s, but the lightning seemed more violent, incredibly bright, and very, very loud thunder, that just rumbled away for ages. One strike was followed by thunder after only a second or so, and it was a tearing, crackling sound, must have been very close.Posted 3 years ago
Still occasionally rumbling away now.
