This is a photo of me in the shack just before lunch today. Since lunch, I have had to disconnect everything because of an approaching lightning storm. At the last count (flashes to thunder) it was about 2km away but I think the storm is now moving away.

For storm maps see http://www.lightningmaps.org/realtime?lang=en . The storm seems to have moved off: I can still hear thunder (to the east) but no nearby lightning. We have heavy rain, which will do the garden good.
Just a moment ago there was a flash and thunder almost overhead. This showed up on the lightning map. Storms still rolling around. I shall not reconnect the antennas and radio gear for a while yet.
