Just another British summer

As I was driving home from Kent yesterday evening the sky was getting darker and darker. Clearly a storm was on the way. Coming up the A20 I could see the rain falling over Bexley/Crayford way. As I came about the South Circular towards the A2 it started to rain, seriously. Motorbike riders were stopping under bridges, wipers were going double speed. Sitting in the traffic jam at Kidbrooke I could see lightning to the East; however the rain stopped and the rest of my journey home was uneventful.

When I arrived home I found the remains of a torrential downpour. Not rain though, hailstones. Hailstones the size of marbles. Just another British summer then!
