I'll phone my son, he'll be so glad.
What about me though down here in the SE. Waaah!
Absolutely hammered it down here yesterday afternoon. A good 4-5 inches (in my washing basket that i had left outside along with all my washing). Fair bit of thunder too.
Really humid now, odd spot of rain, and storms predicted later.
Night was much cooler. I even needed a thin sheet at one point.
How come you got it and I didn't?
It wasnt forecast either!
Huge amount of thunder just starting now. Gonna be one hell of a storm i think.
That's what I can hear eh?
Don't think we are going to get it again
We got six raindrops
We had those this morning at about 6am.
Just had about a millimetre and it's now cooler outside than in.............for a minute or two anyway
No storm, but heavy thundery rain for a while. The garden has perked up a bit now, looking less like everything is trying to die.
I've had a look on the radar and there's a storm 10 miles to the left and lightening 10 miles to the right typical!
Even with clouds its 27c here at the moment
Im in the 'where's my thunderstorm??' camp too. Its still just hot, stuffy and giving me a headache around here.
Surely we have had enough summer now? cant it be autumn yet??
I think this is going to be the norm going forward as it's down to climate change. So unless we can do something to reverse it fast, were stuck with it.
Time I think for those who haven't already done so, to consider what we can do to make summers bearable on the domestic front.
I'm looking to finding ways to keep more windows open all night (cat not allowed out at night). And efficient, but not too expensive, ways of cooling my flat, although I don't know how to do that without consuming more energy.
Also using my oven less as it's like a furnace in here when I'm cooking, even though I use my mic and slow cooker as much as possible.
All suggestions considered.
Its still going.
Its weird as it has a really strong metallic smell.
Yes I feel quite guilty about the AC unit but I hardly use any fuel for heating in the winter as I prefer to be slightly cool. Even yesterday when it was unbearably hot I only had the AC on for a few hours and the fan the rest of the time
We have just been using the toaster, a George foreman grill, microwave and hot plates. I couldn't even stand to start the oven! Mind, I've had salad most days
Have you rain?
Yes. Couple of heavy downpours. Almost dark outside now.
I really love salad but I'm getting a bit fed up of it now lol.
I had my coat on this morning walking Belle. Quite chilly here. Wish that storm was up here, I love when it goes dark and rain pelts against the windows.
Im looking into reflective blinds for the windows. I think the trick is to keep the heat out as much as possible and that seems like a cheap option. Also read a suggestion about putting a bottle of frozen water next to fan (poor persons air con??)....gonna see if that works too.
well, I kinda got my thunderstorm. I think we had about a months worth of rain in 15 mins, a few rumbles and that was it. Felt like a monsoon...esp as the rain was really warm, so it didnt really cool things down much.
@catz4m8z ,it does work with the iced bottle in front of the fan. Just remember to place the bottle in a container as it ends up sitting in a puddle of water.
Sorry you were disappointed by the rain.
