You think that waters bad tox, you should see my driveway when we have a welsh downpour, wouldnt be able to walk up it tbh
Erey isn`t the right word for it. But can almost feel the atmosphere. I used to get headaches b4 anything started, not so bad now.

i think you should build an ark!!

We've had 2 months worth of rain fall within 24 hours in leicestershire. I'm ok as i live in one of the highest places, muahahah.

Had a bit of thunder and lightning today. Been dark and depressing all day.

Found this site if anyone needs some tips on taking pics of storms.

EDIT: found and now lost as i didnt post it, what a dork

Wow PV that is nuts :|. We've never had anything quite like that, but there was this one storm we had last summer, it was the craziest lightning I've ever seen. It literally didn't stop. It just kept flashing outside. Like, *bolt* *bolt* *bolt.*

This summer, we haven't even lost power yet once.. kind of glad but I kinda want a big storm too.
