Thunder like rock 'n' roll.....

Another mighty storm today - rocking and rolling round the end of the Long Mountain, flashing and crashing, shaking windows and doors. Man and beast dive for cover. The sheep, I notice, are in the lee of the hedge, a line of hunched silhouettes against a slatey sky. The air is warm but the rain sharp and cold as nails.

The storm passes, leaving only a strange metallic tang and some spectral wisps of cloud winding across the dark conifers of Badnage Wood. That's enough for now.

We haven't had the thunder but this morning the roads were swamped and the rain was like stair-rods...

Completely different this evening though.
