So, I was out for an evening stroll taking the long way to Tesco's, where out of the corner of my eye I saw what looked like a faint camera flash, but looking around I couldn't spot anything to cause it and so just thought it was rather odd. Then a few seconds later as I was walking underneath the railway bridge, I heard the rumblerumblerumblerumble sound of a passing train... up until with a BOOM it morphed into the sound of thunder.
At that point I decided it would be a good idea to cut the rest of my walk short and head straight to Tesco's. This worked out well, as a couple of minutes after I got there it started bucketing down outside.
Curiously enough the rain only lasted a minute or two, and that single strike was it for the lightning, leaving the evening with that hot and muggy feeling that threatens but never quite delivers a thunderstorm. British weather is weird.
