    Anyone near Southampton see the large flash?

    The thunder took ages to get to Chandlers Ford but damn it was loud.

    And they said we would have no thunder storms tonight :rolleyes:

    It's the brightest I've seen lightning in a long time, very intense. Really lighting up the room even with the light on.

    Edit: On top of me now

    i think this is possibly the loudest/brightest i've ever known. if the wind and rain pick up too it's gonna be a scary night!
