Awesome storm
 
Last night we had the most violent thunderstorm I have ever seen. It really was incredible. It was much worse over Swansea than anywhere else.

Constant fork lightening for about 3 hrs - a few houses were hit and some transformers - power surge blew out 1 of our computer's power supplies - guess which one - MINE!!!

Loved watching the storm though - never seen rain like it - loads of floods to wash the Discovery in.

Really mad this end of wales as well down by the severn - the noise and flashes were as good as anything I've seen in the Med or in the Alps. The amount of water flooded our road in 10 mins! would have been enough to float in!
