30 June 1942: dangerous lightning

30 Tues. War, fine & sunny till evening when a thunder storm of great severity developed. At one period the lightning was dangerously low and incessant. One terrific flash swept over the houses and almost demolished the chimney stack at 42 Chestnut Road. Three fire engines and a tender and an escape and an ambulance car were soon at the scene; it gave them a bit of practice anyhow. Letter from Mrs Hodges. Did small amount of shopping on bike. Planted seedling tomatoes.
