practically tropical

Well! What a lot of weather we’ve been having recently. The closest lightning I’ve ever seen in my life and hugely impressive thunder. Complete with flash floods (although do they really count, if it was just blocked drains? Putative flood appears in under an hour, wreaks havoc, and disappears again just as quickly, leaving dry pavements and nothing but innocent piles of silt to mark the scene of the shortlived devastation).

Still, mustn’t grumble – three whole days of summer we’ve had already!
