881 lightning strikes in last 3 hours. Wow!
Happily, none of them closer than 10 km from here but it must have been spectacular between 16:30 and 17:30, possibly in the Nicosia region.

We went to IKEA in Nicosia yesterday. Very humid there. Luckily left before the storm hit but Rosemary's phone was showing heavy rain, hail and thunder. We had a few very large drops of rain whilst we were on the motorway passsing where Devil lives. The sky was very black behind us.
