It's just passed over South London.

Been incessant here... Kent/Surrey border. We need amazing Weather MNer here but from my limited knowledge I'd say the storm cells were quite intense just because of the wind that springs up before the downpours. I was suddenly concerned we might get mini tornados or something! Think though it was just low pressure.

My DS has zombied into our bed and immediately fallen asleep.

A bit mental in east london just now!

Think it will bypass us here...

Rumbling thunder!

And now rain and lightening!

I love a good storm.

There's lots of thunder and lightning in SE London right now.

Hmm ok. So my road has gone from dry to mini-river type flooded in less than four minutes.

And my floor is wet from opening the french doors.

Female cat hiding in the house. Dog wanted to out then started crying. tomcat went out for the worst of it - just back in now it's over (but then he likes watching fireworks). i jumped out of my skin. but we do need the rain! (I have to say that - we are in England so have to talk about the weather)

KneeQuestion Fri 18-Jul-14 03:35:51

That was awesome.

laracroft2001 Fri 18-Jul-14 03:38:30

FG?! I am very near canary wharf if that helps

Raining heavy now but most of storm seems to have passed.

Wishing it would go away here - how long before it passes over? Been about an hour already.

laracroft2001 Fri 18-Jul-14 03:45:17

Egghead68 Fri 18-Jul-14 05:08:35

Bucks has had it terrible. Been awake since 2:30.

EveDallasRetd Fri 18-Jul-14 05:09:32

Woke up to a great storm here (Worcs) about half an hour ago. Was loving it - really loud thunder and lightening...then I remembered that I left the car windows wide open. Balls.

laracroft2001 Fri 18-Jul-14 05:12:01

I am really really nervous about my husband being out in this...

MooseBeTimeForSpring Fri 18-Jul-14 05:13:40

I love a good storm. The skies here are huge and we get storms like I've never seen before. A couple of years ago we had a hailstorm so bad it broke windows and damaged cars so badly some were nearly written off.
