The two storms of the last week have been very frightening. I have never known noise like the thunder and lightning storm we had the other Wednesday. It sounded like World War Three.
I talked to a middle aged farmer the other day. Says he had never seen or heard storms quite like them in his life. The storms look like they are to be a regular visitor. I often wish we had built a cellar when we built our little cottage in the countryside next to the sea. Somewhere to go in a storm. We live ten minutes walk from the bay. Luckily we have cliffs above the sea. Also it means that the land can drain via the streams into the sea.
