Thanks very much Andy and Paul, glad you enjoyed the video, it was the best structure we have seen all year so far, and with the huge area of rotation on show it was like Christmas morning for us, a mesocylone over lough neagh was not something we expected that day. Footage is a bit all over the place because I was excited and couldn't decide between video or stills so had to keep swapping which was a bit unsettled but at least it's documentary style which feels very natural. Wish I had taken more now, a good vid camera on a tripod recording  in time lapse would have been amazing.

I know what you mean Andy about getting distracted while driving, I nearly put us in the ditch  a few times when I saw that storm from the road  Smiley

Here's a two page image account on my site about this rotating storm, hope it does it justice.
