That lightning storm at the end of may last year was insane, we could hear it coming up and it went straight over the islands and across the channel to hit the south coast between poole and Portsmouth. Scary stuff , the French know how to make a good thunder storm.

Love a good continental thunderstorm to clear the air.

We would love a big thunderstorm and a few days of steady rain.

No real rain since April and temps in the 30s.
