But now it's all gone...

Let's hope your car is still there ... ;)


Yup, just fetched it in! Two observations:-

1) The usual leak into the boot, which I expected to be a right mess, was almost dry! :)
2) The Saharan sand, which had covered both our cars overnight, had not washed off! :(

Me too! Must say that this was the best one I have ever experienced in the UK - almost as good as the ones we used to get when we lived in Germany!

Out of interest, how did you know about Sleaford? Was it on the news?

Me too, too. ;)
The weather service have promised thunderstorms and heavy rain for tonight. Let's see whether they'll keep their promise.

Ditto! Think how much worse it would have been if we hadn't had a load of it before you did! :D

Was at Work this morning when we had our first hit, I was standing outside in 3 Inches of Water, the Storm Drain was flooded and the Pits below the Entry / Exit Barriers had completely filled and where both overflowing. It was so dark, like so many places, all the Lighting came on. Very Eery.......

Really feel I missed out. It looks like it must have rained here at home, but just lovely sun now.

So does Mrs D, but whilst we've heard some rumbles, here on the Riviera of Lincolnshire, no rain and now a lovely evening!

Well, it was so thick on the Lincolnshire coast, both clouds and rain that it obliterated the Sat signal for quite a while.

That apart Mrs Lincoln, did you enjoy the play

Seems there was a lot of flooding round here! Gill saw houses with sandbags around them as she drove back from work, and the sirens were going all afternoon (presumably Fire Brigade pumping water out?)

I did do some little videos on my phone of the thunderstorm (nothing in the vids but to get the sound!) and also to show the road semi flooded, but they are a bit poor to post up!
