I live in London. I was on the net when I heard a huge clap of thunder. The lightening was so bright. The rain was pounding horizontally off my windows. I have seen worse, but that was pretty spectacular.
My parking lot was flooded. Luckily my car survived. The wheels where submerged, but the water did not enter. The storm drains did not do their job last night.
The wind was VERY strong too.
