We've just had:

1. A big flash of lightening.
2. A loud clap of thunder that set the car alarm off.
3. A fierce hailstorm

Thunder & lightening in January?

    It's called weather. :wink: Unlike other parts of the world which have very boring weather (with ocasional outbursts of pure evil) ours is more than able (and happy) to give us a taste of at least two seasons every day (or maybe more if circumstances permit). I remember snow threee feet deep one week in June in the early sixties followed by a mini heat-wave.

    This morning we had something resembling a spring morning, now there's a howling wind and lashing rain. This time last week it was minus eleventyhundred and there was snow. :roll: Apparently variety is the spice of life. DD

    PS Or perhaps the arthritis god was celebrating his latest strike against yours truly. Get in! :lol:

    I saw on the news that southern counties have had thunder and lightning. Where I live we have only experienced thunder in May and September. So it is fairly unusual for this time of year.
