This is/was an epic thunderstorm. Blocks of hail so big that they bounced stones off of my neighbour's roofs. The cul-de-sac is flooded. Forked lightning and very loud thunder.

I was in the shower when it started, and I have no idea whether being in a shower during a thunderstorm is more dangerous than not, so I rinsed very quickly and got out.

Why is it always bigger hailstones in summer than winter?

Now it's stopped raining and left us with that weird peri-storm witchlight, and I feel very strange having watched that.

Oooh, I love that light - when everything is sort of pink?

Yeah, that. The sky couldn't decide whether it was grey or blue or pink, and I certainly wasn't doing to tell it to make its mind up! And the soaking wet fences looked magnificently orange, too.

Two rain-showers later (with no more thunder, thankfully), it seems to have turned blue again...

Oh, lovely! I'm envious, we hardly ever get thunderstorms here - maybe once every few years.
