Now that's a thunderstorm

I'm in Gravesend

There's a storm i'd say about 15 miles away, worst i've seen in my lifetime. I'd estimate it to be over some part of Essex at the moment

Pretty amazing to watch!

Anyone else got a thunderstorm where they are

Oh you'd know with this one, it's lighting the whole sky up all round the house

We had a lighting bolt a few minutes ago that looked like it touched down and it also had 4 or 5 smaller bolts to the side.

I can't hear the TV over the thunder and it's not even over me yet!

The rain is just starting, we are just over the water from Kent so if it doesn't drive it will be here quicker ,lol.

Re chocolate cake, went to the Co-op tonight and they still had loads of todays date stuff on the shelves at half seven so loaded some nice bits in my basket and bowled up to the manager and asked "how much?"
He said 20p each bit...........sweet chilli chicken kebabs were to die for!!
