that amazing weather change?
It was like the tail end of a nuclear blast. Terrifying. Set off our fire alarm too.
and that you need to elaborate on this
(Happy new year, warny)
Quite gusty outside, but there was a sudden distant roar, then incredibly intense rain and low cloud rolling past the windows at high speed, shaking the building, turning the sky black, making a hell of a racket and setting off alarms everywhere. Lasted about 3 minutes then stopped. Thought it was the end of the world.
Only seen such an intense weather change at the top of a mountain before.
Sunny, breezy, day to whiteout in under a minute.
We had that in Oxford. Also there were 2 huge thumps and our office shook.
Must have missed that..
that sounds pretty cool actually, I like freaky weather...so long as I'm warm and dry
The rain was literally horizontal. I mean, absolutely 100% straight along in your face horizontal.
Our whole office watched a poor mother and two kids descend The Mound in the full blast.
Our director had just gone out to post his letters.
He dropped them all. Then fell over. Then got up and fell over again.
