Yep, here to in East Yorks. would imagine Paul (1stNewcar) did as well?

Did you get one around 10 ish then again in the early hours? We did. It was the amount of torrential rain that surprised me! Great to watch though.

No didn't get one at 10!

Got the one in the early hours and it was almost like a tropical storm!! It was good to watch.

Had something strange go off with the electric, the electronic clocks went off and reset themselves!

Yeah our electrics went funny as well.

Thought it was great first thing this morning - the oxygen was back if you know what I mean. Now it's gone a bit sticky again around here. Could be in for another storm.

If we are Paul needs to stay awake this time. Like the new avatar btw Paul.

I love thunderstorms...provided they don't come with the tornadoes. And I don't mean the metalic ones with wings.

Had one a couple of years ago with the lightning strike about 1/10 of a mile away. AWESOME!
