Its fine here, which is just as well as I will be off before long to Guildford to watch Surrey vs Kent in the Pro 40 Division 2.

Donncha O'Callaghan and Bruce Reihana are the best players that ever lived. Don't even bother to argue with me.

Had a couple of cracking storms yesterday in NW Leicester City. Some lightning strikes very close by - slightly scary.

My boss saw Patrick Stewart in A&C at Stratford - she said he had the audience in the palm of his hand throughout, totally captivating as an actor.

Debbie, having seen Patrick Stewart in a play in London I can very much vouch for your last comment.

we had a smallish storm around 6am yesterday (Saturday) very little lightning, but thunder and about 20 minutes rain.,

Then by about 4pm it got darker and darker, more and more humid, and we had a huge terrific thunderstorm, torrential rain and gusty winds for about an hour, then light rain for about another hour. Freshened things up nicely.

I took my daughter and her friends up to the high ground overlooking Long Clawson to show them our donkey.

From high up there we could see the storms heading our way across Leicestershire. It was very spooky as there were funnels coming out of the clouds that almost looked like tornados.

Then all hell broke loose. Powerful swirling winds, black skies, constant and lightening. The poor donkey was going mental because all the horses were in their stables and he was out there on his own.

There were indeed funnels in the clouds as the storm built up, Kinoulton. I took some photos (I sometimes post on a weather/stormwatch forum) and in one it shows a funnel quite clearly.

looks like another bout of storms Thursday and friday - YAY!
