Cowart's Common Room
Thunder

Very dark grey sky this morning, split just now by a flash of lightening. Not the sort of weather you expect in the morning, or as my grandfather would say, the forenoon, for he was adamant that the morning was that time that began at midnight and ended at nine o'clock. Never heard him say, on the other hand, 'Good Forenoon' - but he did say 'Good Day,' I seem to remember, and used to lift his hat with a slight bow.

How times change! Like grey skies in the morning and thunder over the muesli which some people must be eating now. There's just been another flash. Everything else is still, only the crack and roll of the heavy thunder rumbling away into the distance. The rain is falling.

Re:
Fennie's Avatar I guess it was your lightening then, Toady, that I could see from my window. South anyway.

A wonderful picture of a thunderstorm.

Your father sounds lovely, you do not often see that these days when gentleman lifts their hats.

Very grey day here too in Norfolk, and much rain. I am off to pop the kettle on for a hot cuppa, have a great weekend Fennie whatever the weather.

Re:
Fennie's Avatar Thank you, Withy. But wasn't trying to be poetic - just came out that way.

Camilla it was my grandfather who lifted his hat and bowed; my father couldn't abide hats.

I am wondering whether you can have a thunder snow storm, WW. That would suit you even better. Very Happy Or would the lightning melt the snow? I'm sorry you don't have any thunder your way. You're welcome to some of ours. You could try rubbing the clouds with an amber hair brush next time you have your broomstick out and see what happens.Very Happy

Thanks for all your comments!
