There is a strange light in the garden.
Everything is extra green as if the sky has used some kind of filter to accentuate the colour.. It’s nice but a little strange.
Our Met Office has put up one of their yellow warnings with dire predictions of lightening up the East Coast of the country. Naturally I fired up my trusty old windy.com and switched to the radar. Oh yes… Lots of heavy showers around. I waited, but no lightening. I widened the view a bit and I see that England’s East Coast is getting a few belts but nothing spectacular. But I don’t care about them – they can look after themselves.
Now Italy is the place to go today if you want pyrotechnics. Lovely little storm in the centre with a constant barrage of discharges. Still nothing here though.
Our Met Office has a bit of a thing about thunder. They love predicting the possibility of a bang or two around the country but somehow it rarely happens. We are a remarkably thunder free country. On Tuesday they issued a warning for the entire Eastern half of the country with prospects of lightening everywhere. There was a brief storm over northern Dublin and I even heard a couple of rumbles here but nothing spectacular at all.
Things are hotting up in Spridlington near Lincoln I see. They are having a quiet [very noisy] little lightning party there, but still nothing here.
The green out the window has toned down a bit. It has started to rain. Still no thunder.
I’m a little jealous of Spridlington.
