2005 wasn't it? I remember this... I couldn't get home from work. I got off the bus early because a normal half an hour journey had already taken over two hours, I knew it'd be quicker to walk. I got to a junction where the police stopped me from passing. I asked how I was going to get home because all of my options were blocked off by them and they said "I really have no idea".

This may sound weird and nobody ever believes me but I can tell if there is a storm coming because I get a headache. I've always been the same.
Once the pressure outside changes I get this dull throbbing headache.
I never thought anything of it - it just always happens - but then there was an article in the Daily Mail.
Our storm will be here later - I can feel it. Maybe it's time to join the circus.

Hot & Sunny here, but I can see your storms on this page. Boltek Lightning detector on the Isle Of Wight.
My current weather is here, but if it says 43m/s wind, it's lying! I think it is an earth fault, but it is proving difficult to tie down.

The tornado in Brum passed within a few meters of the school I worked at back then.
It was very surreal, eveything fell dead and then all of a sudden these huge winds seemed to suck the trees, leaves, rubbish and anything light enought to be affected towards the direction of the tornados path. I never actually saw the tornado but the effects were scary I would hate to be in the middle of it.

Well sunny Kendal has changed to dramtic thunderstomy Kendal. It's setting every alarm in the neighbourhood off!
Trying to persuade my trainee tech out with a kite but he doesn't want to know!

School flooded not in tomorrow due to heavy rain.

If the lightning tracker is anything to go by, the storm that just passed over us (and believe me, it was wet) is headed straight in your direction...

Which school was that? There was a school on the Stratford road not far out of town which took a hit very badly... was closed for quite a bit afterwards while they did major repairs to the roof.

We have had torrential rain for the last couple of hours and the school is leaking like a sieve.

I'll never forget one ripping half of our roof off whilst I was inside the house. We were lucky, the neighbours garage collapsed ontop of their car and other houses came off worse. It only lasted a matter of seconds but the windows, doors and even walls seem to shake quite hard - an experience you never forget.

Seems I spoke to soon, just had another bout of thunder and hail (at home this time)...

Plenty of water and hail before I left work, the roof was certainly sounding not too good, flippin flat roofs! We will have some floods no doubt, I should have gone and moved some kit from our DT Room that flooded a bit since when they had flash flooding as it ALWAYS leaks right over some dis-boards and network switches Hey ho maybe a nice big Insurance Job (rats should have moved the entire server rack under it )
