    We're having a thunderstorm over the UK and it's really freaking me out lol. I've never heard one so loud. I just took that photo of the night sky. It's like it's day. It's almost 2am and the sky is flashing so bright it blinding.

    Lovely stuff, weather, just had that here too - almost continuous lightning!

    Brought the temp down over 2 deg C in 20 minutes, which is nice.

    Kewl, I like storms. :D

    Eh, we're all made of the same bits of electrical energy potential....Celts knew it. ;)

    Redundant to say that is "bloody brilliant"?

    Wow that's a crazy storm! I kinda like thunder and lightning (as long as it's far enough away that i'm relatively safe). But my dogs lose their minds.

    Idk. I just know that the storm bloody freaked me out lol. The lightening just went on and on. It was like looking through night vision glasses. I never know what to do when there's a storm. Like whether to unplug the Internet or something haha that sound so superstitious

    Well you'd ideally want to unplug anything to which you are going to be close, or which is too expensive to lose to a giant natural arc welder wielding thousands of amps DC!

    Makes sense. I do have everything plugged through trip switches and power breakers, except my Internet connection that is. I can't say for sure how reliable those back ups are
