Lightning Tracker


I know some people like lightning, and I know some people don’t. Ok, admittedly it’s the thunder they don’t like but as they say, there’s no smoke without fire etc.

Just came across this via Twitter and Sven Latham, a lightning tracker. Basically it shows where and how frequently lightning has hit Europe, check this link for the UK.

On the note of thunder / lightning, when I was in the States I posted about a serious storm coming in, read here, well I got the camera out and shot the picture below. I was impressed!

Uber cool!

However, this morning, it felt like my body had given up! A quick G&T for breakfast, by quick I mean 4 quick G&Ts, sorted me right out. Food also a normal necessity in a morning, so got some of that too. Time for some bands…

Truck-ing Friday


Where to start when talking about Truck? So much fun, frolics, misbehaviour and did I mention fun(?) all wrapped up into a weekend.

A good change for this year was the fact they allowed us into the camp site on the Friday night. Something to do with the increased number of tickets available, the organisers felt that they would need to get people in before Saturday morning. This seems fair, rather than the normal rule where only people who have previously arranged to enter on the Friday, who were coming from far away, would be allowed in. That’s basically where the carnage started.
