There were some wicked thunderstorms here in Dublin last night in the early morning. I actually woke with a start and thought "Shit did I put my windows up?" ...As in, the windows on my car...which is sitting in New Jersey.
It was nice watching the thunder and lightening - really rare here. First big thunderstorm I've seen in over 6 months. The sky was a ominous and glowing red, it was gorgeous. But like all the weather in Ireland it moved very fast and maybe was most intense for a quarter hour.
