    Biblical weather about 1 oclock. Water gushing into the school and up through the toilets making it horribly smelly down the corridors.

    One room got flooded really badly which holds my smoothwall server.... it was under 6 inch of water when I got into it so I spent a couple of hours mopping it up and have left a couple of air conditioning units drying it out overnight.

    All in all.. a bad day

    It passed over Chorley and we had 40 mins of what could be described as biblical flood weather. I went to Lancaster in the afternoon, and they hadn't had a drop!
    The raspberrys in our back garden need a good soak though :/

    I had a mate who had exactly the same thing - every time there was a storm coming he got a blinding headache. It was either something to do with blocked sinuses & sudden drop in air pressure pre-storm, or else it was because he was a miserable git. I suspect the latter.

    Blimey there was nothing biblical this end. That's shocking! At most we had a bit of rain and a crack of thunder every now and then.

    I dont know about anyone else but I'm still trying to figure out what this 'Lunch' thing is that Singist mentioned.

    Seriously though we've not had anything extreme down here...got overcast yesterday with some pretty impressive cloud formations but it just blew over and the sun came out again. At the moment I'm sat in the back garden soaking up the sun again....not in work today as my daughter broke her over the weekend and ended up having it pinned and plated as well...that'll teach her not to use just her front brake when out on her bike!!

    Yeah, the rain seemed to be from Chorley southwards. My house in Preston got a light passing shower, and that was it!
