A nice Thunderstorm for pictures but not much else, had lots of cg's, pea sized hail and some light winds.

As it got closer the lightning intensified and more cg's came from the bases edge

Rain now began to fall making picture taking a pain , the last shot a rain drop sneaked into the pick but it was in the corner so it's not too annoying

Naturally nothing happens here.

My friends in London took pictures of marble sized hail covering the ground.
