We had 2 hour thunderstorm last night, VERY high winds, thunder crashing around us and whole house shaking, power went off for 2 2/2 hours as a tree had fallen across cable 500 m away. The lightning was stunning, mainly cloud to cloud but bright enough and continuous enough to be able to read at times.

Nature’s power never ceases to amaze me.⚡⚡⚡💦💦

The local village is built on a quite noticeable hill, the Church is right at the top and obviously attracts the lightning, it gets hit several times a year as can be seen from the very clear copper lightning conductor which has distinct holes where it has been hit. I have never seen such a wide conductor - nearly 7cm width . The sound of the thunder would drown out the drone of the Priest in full session……..
