    Incredible is a good word for it, Michael. I’m gobsmacked.

    I am not familiar with drones so very impressed with the driver/pilot or whatever.

    N.B.  My first attempt to watch this video failed so I thought my problem of last year had returned, but second go worked.

    Incredible video. At moments I wondered if it is not just an animation. But I think it’s real. I hope to witness something like that some day.

    Speaking of tornadoes, there was one in Romania (my native country). Tornadoes are unheard of in that area.

    But why be so surprised? Romania has a relatively large plain in the south. When I was there last time, I took this picture. It reminded of the larger US great plains. I can picture a tornado forming here:

      Nice picture, Michael. I remember you saying last year that you were originally from Romania as I once went there, SE coast, for a holiday (probably while Ceaucescu (sorry if wrongly spelt) was still there). Your picture reminds me of the Danube Delta. Again, before my digital camera.

      And Romania is headlined again, Michael

      It’s the London Bus all over – when one eventually comes there will be a second right behind.

    UK gets about 30 tornadoes a year

    How often do we get tornadoes in the UK?

    I have been in two ‘tornadoes’. A mini one several years ago which ran through Hillier Gardens; I sat it out on a covered seat beside the pond, hearing one bough break nearby but not realising several trees were brought down a few hundred yards away.

    Recently the weather forecast talked of Sahara sand. What I got was a brief ‘snowfall’ of small plant material/leaves and a briefer ‘dust devil’ shooting up around a tree 50 yards away, all in about a minute or two.
