The thunderstorms rolled in on the evening of Tuesday 17 August 2021. Round about 1030 pm though there was fierce lightning and a really loud thunderclap right overhead. Then the lights went out. And stayed out till almost 6 am on the 18th, just after more fierce thunder and lightning.
There was torrential rain too, at several points, but with the power off the weather stations weren’t recording …
It may have just been the Strathnaver area as folks in the village apparently didn’t lose power.
It’s a good reminder though to keep devices charged and to have some emergency drinking water in the house.
