Electric storm

I love running in the rain, and rescheduled yesterday's run to today as I knew it would be raining, but there is unforecast thunder and lightning - should I go out or would it be dangerous? French storms can be a bit vicious, my house got hit a couple of years ago and it knocked out all the electrics, blew up the fridge and washing machine....perhaps it will quiet down by the time I'm ready to go out.

Stay in the house until the thunder and lightning stops. We don't want fried curly gurly !

Seriously though, you should never be the tallest thing outside in a storm.


Teeeeaaaabreaks! There you are! Wanna be my friend on Garmin? (Same name)

Actually it's brightened up a bit now, but the thunder could grumble away all day. I'm still guzzling my tea, just need another 4 mugs then I'm ready...

I'm only 5 FT 10IN!


Ooh yes I will add you or you can look for me. I'm Welsh Jan or Welsh Jan. Not on my computer at the mo. 😀


Love a great French thunderstorm (did a lot of camping there as a kid) blow up out of nowhere, pee it down and sunshine again before you know it........awesome! Hope you didn't get fried ;)


No, I'm still here! It was raining heavily, but the storm had finished. And, yes, the sun came out after, then strong breezes.. a bit of everything yesterday!
