I hear thunder!
Hark, don't you?

(Directly overhead here!)

Apparently it's dead overhead in town, here, but it's four miles away here and I'm not seeing all the lightning. And so far, none of the rain. Are we having some kind of monsoon season that I missed the memo on?

We're getting lots of rain-free thunder too. I feel cheated.

It was dead overhead at one point in our office at the end of the Botley Road. We have windows on the office facing both north and south, and for one particularly loud clap, I was looking out the south-facing window and saw a fork come down, and several other people were looking north and saw a few more forks come down. The sound followed nearly instantaneously. There was also plenty of rain.

I love a good thunderstorm.

Well, I saw a fairly large quantity of the rain on my cycle home. The road drains didn't seem to be doing a terribly good job, so I was cycling up the Banbury River.

The thunder was terriffic, though. Kerrack!

imc just told me that it's apparently raining in a corridor at Comlab. In OX4 it's bone dry. Honestly.

It was bucketing small domestic animules in OX12. Seriously. It wasn't rain, it was hail. We also had scary thunder. Last time I saw a storm like that was on the high veldt.

The rain started in our neck of the woods approximately a minute before imc got home. He must have brought it with him. It hasn't really been buckets though, and I just walked 20 minutes in it without getting completely soaked (damp, but not drenched). So I guess there's some kind of weather pattern excluding our estate...

it's November

Well obviously, seeing as last month was October

We've had a fiar bit of that here recently; it being past the point in the year when we get temperate-type rain, and instead doing semi-tropical-type rain [ which is different in that it comes down like an ocean going through a sieve rather than respectable rain, rarely lasts more than ten minutes, and is warm. ]
