Its the expecation - dark clouds, distant rumbles then a few blobs of rain then a full show of wind lights sound and water.
Best I had on the cut was during our hire boat days when we were chased by a storm that eventually caught us on the narrows just before the Plum Pudding at Armatage. I got so wet just mooring up.
It goes without saying wind on the cut is my least favourite weather !
The Photo was taken walking back just after the storm to my workplace.
