I cannot remember the supposed link between Es and thunderstorms (something to do with sprites going upwards from thunder clouds?) but with plenty of thunderstorms in the Alps, I wonder how Es will be tomorrow? Maybe conditions to southern Europe will be good on 6m Es?
Although I probably could safely reconnect antennas this evening now the storms have passed, I think it will be better to wait until the morning.
Knowing my luck, the 6m band will open transatlantic tonight and I shall miss it all! That would not be the end of the world.
