There were areas of flash flooding, leading to road, train and tram disruptions. Trees fell onto to houses, smashing them to smithereens. Thunder rumbled, lightening flashed and hail pelted from the sky yet at the Highrise, while a bit windy we saw none of it apart from some distant lightening and a brief shower.
I could actually see the fronts split apart on the weather radar and avoid us altogether. Pity really. I wouldn't have minded a good downpour.
