Well, I went out after a tip off from Greg on te UKWW who mentioned the cell approaching here from 50 miles away, I looked above my house and was amazed to see the anvil directly overhead, it was HUGE!! with some mamma on it. This was blown many miles downwind from the storm itself. It took a long time to see the storm but when it arrived it was nasty!, deadly blue c-gs...very dangerous hitting outside the precip area, my nerves were on a knife edge, the thunder was like a gun shot then later like continuous rumbling. The rain from it was incredible, even frightening looking as it approached falling from the gust front over Slieve Gallion. Behind it was a double rainbow with thunder booming...fantastic. Now, there's another storm approaching....
