    "Pending" and "impending"

    Is there any difference between these two words at all?

    thanks

    impending
    I would use it when I know something unpleasant is about to happen.

    ex.The grim looking clouds were a sign of an impending thunder.

    pending
    Not yet decided or settled; awaiting conclusion or confirmation.
    Still in the process, awaiting conclusion.
    This phrase is used a lot in legal papers.

    -Has the jury reached a verdict yet?
    -No, the verdict is still pending. We hope to hear something really soon.
