Thunderwhack!

    I just invented the 'thunderwhack'

    Wondering if it might work - basically if blitzortung (or any other lightning plotter system) returns a map with a single strike, and you hear it - it's a thunderwhack!

    Works for random thunder days - or as the first strike on a big storm day (like today)

    To prove it you just post a screenshot of the map and shout THUNDERWHACK! (in caps)

    Only an idea. But could be fun!

    Sounds like too much effort to be honest :)

    I'm not sure how that would even work. What's to stop somebody just lying? OK, a pathetic thing to lie about, but still....

    I'll be straight with u all - would only work if everyone understood it and liked the idea - and looks like on reflection it just isn't everyone's cup of tea - still, passed a few minutes while everyone else was enjoying good old storms up north! :-)
