We do get some lovely intense skies...I just need to get up early enough to enjoy them. Laughing

In the last weeks it has (kind of quickly) changed between hot summer (>30 C) and heavy thunderstorms with pouring rain, floods in towns etc.

Sometimes a thunderstorm is somewhat typical for summer here, but this intensity is extraordinary!

Same here, we have had thunder every day for a week now!! 2 big floods in my town with damages (roads/ gardens/ water in houses++)

It`s been the hottest summer that I can remember in Norway with weeks above 30+ during daytime!! Surprised
I love my aircondition these days Wink

That's amazing Lars, we had similar but the hottest day has been only 29, today it's 25. Where I live we've had one night of thunder
and lightning, but hardly any rain, and it's been almost completely dry for weeks apart from a couple of light showers. Only a few
miles away there has been very heavy rain and floods like Carsten describes. I live on the top of the hills but only 200m high, and it's
amazing what difference that's made.

Mo, we get some amazing sunrises too, but only once in a blue moon and always in January, when the sun rises directly in front of our
window. This was in 1998 I think, on film. I scanned two prints and stitched them.



And this was in 2010. I haven't bothered to clone out the cables this time.

Beautiful sunrises Peter! Very Happy

I have family in Gloucester, so I`ve been driving "near your doorstep" a few times on the M40 Wink
I usually like to drive the smaller English roads thru small villages on the way. English countryside is very nice!

Wow! I live only about 10 minutes from the M40 at Junction 3 or 4. Next time you're passing you must pop in for a cup of tea! Very Happy

Stormy grey weather here as well,Panasonic G1 and Konica 100/2.8

Stormy here as well. Two inches of rain in the past 24 hours, yet they are saying "the storm" will arrive tonight & go into tomorrow morning. This is due to "pineapple express", aka "river in the sky", stretching from Hawaii to North America.

I'm near Honeydew, left side, down in the middle:

I've got three words for you that describe the weather we've had here for days:

Ugly, disgusting, terrible.

It wasn't too bad. Around -2C, so not really cold.
But today it's grey outside again, with drizzly rain and +3C. The snow will be gone soon. Sad

So called "skull weather" ("pkallokeli") which means small roads, pavements, paths, steps etc all on ice and raining water on top of them.

First time in two years have to take these out of box.
