thunderstorm in January

There is a first for everything. I can't remember ever having seen or heard a thunderstorm in January - It's maybe 5 degrees and we have thunder and lightning and heavy rain and 2 official weather warnings.


First I thought they put up a speed camera - well but they usually don't make a noise. I think I will use the thunderstorm to make myself a cup of tea and do some sewing. And maybe just do the Goodbye January Welcome February blogging part.

Well for the NewFO link up it's interessting what I started this month:
