Good catch. There were some very long rumbles of thunder too but very little rain.

Thank you, folks.

There's more about tonight, apparently, depending on which weather forecast you read......

Ah, there you go, Photobucket have removed my photo.

Bye bye, Photobucket! W*nkers.

Can't stand Flickr, but I guess it's the only option.....
