Plenty of action here in Oxford yesterday! I was at a pre-arranged meeting at the pub around the corner from where I live and so wisely choose a window seat with a good view of both the sky and those outside dashing for cover without coat or umbrella because they hadn't heard the forecast for the day!  Grin

The best thunderstorm started at around 1.30pm BST (not long after I arrived) though I didn't manage to see any actual forks. The rain continued relentlessly even after the thunder & lighting moved off the scene after about 30 minutes but during the rest of the afternoon, we were treated to another couple of 'mini' thunder & lightning displays.

I made good use of the temporary lull at about 5.30pm to leg it home (only a couple of minutes, thank goodness!) without getting wet!

More soon, please!  Grin
