We've just had a short sudden intense cloudburst, through which some patches of blue sky could still be seen. It's now passed, and some birds are now flying across the town in the distance.

Sky juest went dead (I listen to radio 4 via it) and when I checked the signal the message "no satellite signal" was displayed. Then the thunder crashed loud enough to shake the house and a few minutes later the radio came back on for about 2 minutes before dying again. Now it is piddling it down. I'm pretty sure it would take longer than 20 minutes or so for your cloudburst to get this far :)

Well, it's bright sunshine here right now. So it's not here any more, and you're only a few hundred km away.

Thunder strikes taking out geosynchronous satellites is a little unusual, I must say.

We're on the edge anyway with the valley and the trees, so additional atmospheric problems just cause it to go *splot*.

Our Sky's been dropping out for a few seconds every few minutes for the last half hour or so, though the actual rain isn't all that heavy. Glad to hear it's not just us, in fact!
