Hi Marion
Sorry I know this is going to be a strange question, but I really need to 
know this.  The snow your side of the world has been making news 
here, as with the rest of the Irish news at the moment.  But you say 
that you've also been having thunderstorms?  my question is this - can 
you perhaps explain in a simple sentence or two why you are 
experiencing these thunderstorms please?  

OK, we had a ripper here today, I could hear the Cailleach rolling her 
rocks around from across the bay, and she came right over me, and 
produced such a downpour that three doors were flooded, which wasnt 
very pleasant.   But here we experience a thunderstorm when a cold 
antartic front comes crashing in over a warm desert front.  Further north 
there is another sort of thunderstorm each evening as the cold night air 
drops down on the hot day's air.  But, I cant imagine in the middle of 
your cold snowy weather that you are suddenly experiencing a lovely 
warm front to create the conditions of a thunderstorm.  So, hence the 
question, what's happening with you?
