Beautiful cloudscapes today in the brief times I was outside but the thunder and lightning remains an elusive phenomena for me.
Newsreel footage of serious flooding in Bournemouth and Poole from last night's rain, cars submerged etc.
This afternoon 3 pm, a very local storm in Chichester. I set out in the dry, passed through an area where it was tipping down and out of the other side dry again, Only a mile in it and the same on the way back nearly an hour later.
Then things livened up with several claps of thunder. The remarkable thing was that our robocat (purrs when you stroke it, miaows when the lights are turned on and off or when the TV is switched on) was giving a miaow each time there was a flash of lightning even though that flash was not visible to the eye, just heard the thunder.
